Bobby Caldwell is a drummer, songwriter, producer and arranger who co-founded rock cult bands Captain Beyond (with Rod Evans) and Armageddon (with Keith Relf) during the first part of the 1970s. Prior to these projects he played in some of Johnny Winter's seminal albums like Live Johnny Winter And and also on Saints and Sinners. Bobby was also the drummer on Rick Derringer's All American Boy which produced the classic-rock radio staple Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo.

Famous quotes containing the word caldwell:

    Without our being especially conscious of the transition, the word “parent” has gradually come to be used as much as a verb as a noun. Whereas we formerly thought mainly about “being a parent,” we now find ourselves talking about learning how “to parent.” . . . It suggests that we may now be concentrating on action rather than status, on what we do rather than what or who we are.
    —Bettye M. Caldwell (20th century)
