The US singer and songwriter Bobby Caldwell ("What You Won't Do for Love") died in New Jersey at the age of 71. This was announced by his wife on Wednesday (local time) on the musician's verified Twitter account. He had suffered for years from the complications of a toxic reaction to an antibiotic, she wrote.
Caldwell was born in New York, grew up in Miami and later moved to Las Vegas temporarily. His parents were both entertainers on US television. He also made a name for himself in the early 1970s as the guitarist for rock 'n' roll icon Little Richard (1932-2020). According to his website, Caldwell himself released almost 20 records including compilations. Most recently, the album "Cool Uncle" was released in 2015.
