Be warned the why we are posted this is kind of lengthy and convoluted.

Bobby Valentino (not the one you are thinking about) is an English violinist, singer, songwriter and actor. See, not the Bobby Valentino you were thinking about. This Bobby Valentino was born born Robert James Beckingham June 22, 1954 and adopted the stage name Bobby Valentino in 1975. We hadn't really heard of this Bobby Valentino until he won a 2008 lawsuit against the American R&B singer Bobby Wilson (then billed as "Bobby Valentino") and his then record label Def Jam for "Passing off, Trade Mark infringement, and breach of contract, in relation to record sales, recorded content, and artist’s live performances". Bobby Wilson born on February 27, 1980 known by his stage name Bobby Valentino and now Bobby V (due to the lawsuit) had to Slow Down on using the name Bobby Valentino. Well, actually he had to stop but Slow Down sounded so much better. Bobby V left Def Jam/Disturbing The Peace he blamed them for the poor album sales of his second album Special Occasion failing to reach gold or platinum sales, reportedly frustrated with the album's delays and less than expected sales, culminating in his decision to leave the labels. From the Def Jam/DTP perspective it's difficult to promote an album for Bobby Valentino when you have a infringement case pending in court.

You probably still have never heard music from Bobby Valentino? Well, actually you may have. The violin of Bobby Valintino can be heard on tracks by artists like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bob Geldof, The Alabama 3 and Shania Twain. Apparently Bobby Valentino also knows his way around the courts because in 2002 he won a court case against Robert Hodgens (aka Bobby Bluebell) of Scots pop band The Bluebells for unpaid royalties from his contribution to their 1993 hit Young At Heart, co-written by Hodgens and Siobhan Fahey. Now we have arrived at our Back Jam for today Young At Heart. Enjoy!
