Bobby Caldwell is a drummer, songwriter, producer and arranger who co-founded the rock bands Captain Beyond (with Rod Evans) and Armageddon (with Keith Relf) during the early 1970s. Prior to these projects he played on seminal Johnny Winter albums such as Live Johnny Winter And and Saints and Sinners. Caldwell was also the drummer on Rick Derringer's All American Boy, which produced the classic-rock radio staple "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" and played with John Lennon, Ringo Starr and Eric Clapton.
He is still active and living in Florida. In 1998, a reformed, new lineup of Captain Beyond created some new demo songs. The CD included original guitarist Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt. Caldwell has one daughter, Ashley Caldwell Kincheloe.
