The 70-year-old singer of hits including "Wild One" and "Volare" had surgery last week. He tells KYW-AM that his doctor didn't expect him to live much longer without the double organ transplant.
Doctors at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital say they were able to use part of the donor liver to help Rydell and the other part to help a child.
