Bobby Day (July 1, 1928 – July 27, 1990), was an early African American rock and roll and R&B musician.
Born Robert James Byrd, (making him Bobby Byrd - not to be confused with the funk musician/Famous Flames member of the same name), in Fort Worth, Texas, he moved to Los Angeles, California, at the age of 15. As a member of the R&B group, The Hollywood Flames, he used the stage name Bobby Day to perform and record. He went several years with minor musical success limited to the West Coast, including being the original "Bob" in the duo Bob & Earl.
In 1957, Day formed his own band called the "Satellites" following which he recorded three songs that are seen today as rock and roll classics.
