At age 17 I had my first “break”. I became one of the regular “crowd” dancers on a Montreal based TV show called “Like Young”. Every Saturday afternoon I lined up outside CFCF-TV sporting my grandmother’s orthopedic brown lace up shoes, ready to dance. Those borrowed shoes were just super for dancing and they looked fabulous with my floor dusting gabardine pants. Every week after the show we got to meet the featured singing artist. I remember having to sit down very quickly before I fainted when Bobby Darin shook my hand.

But we didn’t go just to see him perform “If You Could Read My Mind” or "Sundown". We went to talk with his “superfans”. (Which included folks like Jeanne Beker, Andy Kim & Ron Sexsmith.)

On how he survived the sex, drugs & rock n’ roll: “I do remember at one point in L.A., there was a period where it had become dangerous and so unhealthy that a doctor actually said to Martin [Scorscese] and me, ‘So, have you done all your best work?
