After a brief spell in the US Army, Vinton's first single was Roses are Red (My Love) in 1962, after which he recorded more Billboard number one hits in the first ten years of rock and roll than any other male singer. Arguably his most famous song is 1963's Blue Velvet.
In the 1970s he had a few more hits such as My Melody of Love which was partially sung in Polish and the cover of Brian Hyland's Sealed With A Kiss.
In the course of his career, Vinton has sold over 75 million records, and is still performing, on tour and at the Bobby Vinton Blue Velvet Theatre in Branson, Missouri.
