During Darin's colorful 12 years of stardom, he has gone through, rock, traditional pop, folk, country ami other trends with a speed that has led many to question his sincerity. His first hit (in lflf>7) was "Splish Splash," a song in the raging rhythm and blues style of the times. It was followed by a scries of other teen-age rock songs: "Queen of the Hop," "Early in the Morning" dnd "Dream Lover."
