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.

In the 1960s he was member of The New Englanders and Noah's Ark.

He is still active and living in Florida. In 1998, a reformed, but new lineup of Captain Beyond created some new demo songs. CB included original guitarist Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt who also played with Iron Butterfly on their Metamorphosis album.[1] Bobby has one daughter, Ashley Caldwell Kincheloe.
