"Often compared to Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin, Bobby was one of the greatest American singers. Born in the Bronx to a poor, working class family at the height of the great depression, Darin's career took off in 1958 when he wrote and recorded 'Splish Splash,' as a result of a bet with radio DJ Murray 'The K' Kaufman, who bet Darin that he could not write a song that started out with the words, 'splish splash, I was takin' a bath', as suggested by Kaufman's mother. Though he later became an actor, a comedian and even a political folk singer of indisputable value, his 1958 debut remains an unprecedented classic in the history of rock and roll."
