#Fact
1Bought a house for his parents in Lower Merion, Pennsylvania.
2Touring Australia at the Crown Casino Melbourne and various RSL clubs in NSW and Queensland. [September 2007]
3The "British Invasion" of 1964 may have hampered his career as a 'Teen Idol", but he did have modest chart success with his cover of "World Without Love (Please lock me away)" (1964). He later rerecorded "Sway" (1976) with a disco flavor.
4In the 1980s he teamed with fellow Philadelphians Frankie Avalon and Fabian to tour as "The Golden Boys of Bandstand" which included a TV special.
5Inducted into Philadelphia's prestigious "Walk of Fame" where he was one of the first 10 inductees to have a star on Broad Street.
6Honored by the City of Philadelphia when the 2400 block of South 11th St. was named Bobby Rydell Boulevard. The event was celebrated with a parade, a string band and Bobby arriving in a 1950 pink Cadillac. The mayor attended along with thousands of people. A huge block party followed dedication ceremonies.
7In 2000, he put out his first album in over two decades, comprised of remakes of old hits.
8Since 1985, he has toured on-and-off in the "Now and Then" nostalgia show with fellow former Philly teen idols Fabian and Frankie Avalon.
9Three major labels turned him down until he was signed up by Cameo-Parkway. He scored 19 'Top 30' hits from 1959 through 1964, including "Kissin' Time" (#11), "Volare" (#4), "Sway" (#4), "Swingin' School" (#5), "Wild One" (#2), and "Forget Him" (#4).
10Discovered as a youth by Paul Whiteman and his local "Teen Club" amateur TV show, staying as a regular with the program for three years.
11Played drums by age six and, at 15, was a drummer for a Philly rock-and-roll combo group called "Rocco and His Saints" that also featured Frankie Avalon on trumpet.
12Bandleader Paul Whiteman, with whose band he worked, renamed him Rydell because he couldn't pronounce Ridarelli.
13"Rydell High School" in the movie musical, Grease (1978), is named in his honor.
