Jan 2014 When was Bobby born?

BOBBY DAY (1928?), the first Black American rock ‘n’ roller to visit the UK on the strength of the 70s/80s revival, seems to have a variable birth date.

 

Bobby played one show at The Powerhouse, Birmingham, promoted by Colin Silcocks, with backing from Welsh band ‘The Red Hot Pokers’. New movie ‘Last Vegas’, starring Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, and Morgan Freeman was a hit US comedy. It opens with ‘Little Bitty Pretty One’, the Bobby Day hit recording. He wrote under his real name of Robert Byrd. Thurston Harris also hit at the same time with his cover.
