Biography

Two artists have been know with this name:

1. Bobby Valentino is a UK violinist/vocalist/songwriter/actor who began in the music business in 1975 as a member of the Fabulous Poodles. During a 30+ year career that includes time in London and Texas, he has played with the likes of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Mike Oldfield, Nick Lowe, Billy Bragg, Mark Knopfler, Big Country and many, many more. He played the violin on and co-wrote the Bluebells hit “Young at Heart” and has appeared on Top of the Pops 17 times.

He has released 3 solo albums of his own songs: “You’re in the Groove, Jackson”(1991); You’re Tellimg Me”(1996) and “This is Murder”(2001). He is currently recording a fourth with a working title of “6 Foot 3”

He tours with a band called Los Pistoleros playing western swing. In looks, he has more than a passing resemblance to Clark Gwereable and has even been employed as a look-alike.

2. Robert Wilson (born February 27, 1980 in Jackson, Mississippi), was previously known by the stage name Bobby Valentino, but because of legal action, he is now officially known as Bobby V. He is an American R&B singer previously signed to Ludacris’ label Disturbing Tha Peace. He released his self-titled debut album in 2005 and has since released 2007’s Special Occassion and 2009’s The Rebirth. He will release his fourth studio album, Fly On The Wall, sometime in 2010.

    This is Bobby Valentin, also known as "El Rey del Bajo" (King of the Bass) (born June 9, 1941), is a musician and salsa bandleader. Annoying.

    Wait so they autofixed all these plays to go to Bobby V, then they changes it back to this one, but say that it's still the incorrect tag? I'm deleting this page, changing all the tags in my library to Bobby V, cause that is what his name is supposed to be since the lawsuit anyway, and that's what he goes by now.
