Singer-songwriter Bobby Caldwell, who was best known for his smooth jazz hit “What You Won’t Do For Love,” has died. He was 71. Caldwell died on Tuesday at his home in New Jersey, his wife Mary Caldwell confirmed on Twitter.
Mary wrote that she believed her husband had been “floxed,” a term used by some to describe rare but painful side effects of fluoroquinolone antibiotics.
Caldwell was known for his blue-eyed soul, and “What You Won’t Do For Love,” which appeared on his eponymous debut album in 1978, cracked the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The song went on to be a classic, and was covered by artists including Boyz II Men, Michael Bolton and Natalie Cole and Peabo Bryson.
