Bobby Vee Net Worth $10 Million Dollars

Bobby Vee Net Worth: Bobby Vee is an American pop music singer with a net worth of $10 million. Vee was still a teenager when he formed his first combo, the Shadows, with his brother Bill and their buddy Bob Korum. The trio’s big break came in macabre conditions as his brother Bill deputized for Buddy Holly, who lost his life within an air crash in February 1959. Soon after, the band was discovered by famous producer Snuff Garrett, which is how their independent record ‘Suzie Baby’ was released on a major label, Liberty Records. Having college-boy looks and boy next door persona, Bobby decided to embark on a solo career. His initial records, including a cover of Adam Faith’s What Do You Want?, failed to live up Vee’s anticipated success. In the short period from 1961 to 1962, he reached the peak of his career having some hits like ‘More Than I Can Say’, ‘How Many Tears’, ‘Take Good Care Of My Baby’ (a US number 1), ‘Please do not Ask About Barbara’ and ‘Sharing You,’among others. On the other hand, the single that turned out to be the most enduring is the imaginatively titled ‘The Night Has A Thousand Eyes.’ Vee’s allure was enormously influenced and waned following the coming of the Beatles. Although he made a number of movie appearances (Just For Fun and C’mon, Let’s Live A Little) he stayed out of the limelight. It was in 1967 that Vee returned to the US Top 5 with ‘Come Back When You Grow Up’. Later, he contented himself with routine appearances at rock ‘n’ roll resurrection shows and he never ceased to record new material.
