Andy Williams carried on the crooning cardigan tradition of Perry Como deep into the rock 'n' roll years. A good singer with seamless technique, Williams had a bright TV personality and a string of hit singles ("I Can't Get Used to Losing You," and "Moon River" are the two that still get plenty of spins on AM radio) throughout the late 1950s, '60s and '70s. In a surprise twist, Williams became every vengeful woman's fantasy when he stood by ex-wife Claudine Longet after she shot and killed skiing legend/paramour Spider Sabich in 1976. Since those heady days, Williams' recording career has slowly wound down, but he continues to be a big concert draw and has his own theatre in Branson, Missouri.

Through the 1960s he became more active politically and worked on Robert Kennedy's presidential campaign. He was present with his campaign at the hotel in Los Angeles on the evening of his assassination. Occurring during the same year as he learned of the true nature of his birth, these events deeply affected Darin and sent him into a long period of seclusion.
Although he made a successful television comeback, his health was beginning to fail, as he had always expected, following bouts of rheumatic fever in childhood. This knowledge of his vulnerability had always spurred him on to exploit his musical talent while still young. He died at 37, following a heart operation in Los Angeles.
