Williams, Bobby

Bobby Williams (also known as Big Bad Bobby Williams) (1947 – 2000) was a drummer that played with Springsteen and other artists on the Jersey-shore in the early 1970s. He was a member of Funky Dusty & The Soul Broom, a short-lived (summer-fall 1970) four-piece band also consisting of Steve Van Zandt, Garry Tallent and "Southside" Johnny Lyon. In the Spring of 1971 he backed Springsteen as a Friendly Enemy and then as part of Dr. Zoom & The Sonic Boom. Beginning in 1970, he also performed with his own Big Bad Bobby Williams Band. Williams was immortalized in Springsteen's liner notes for Southside's album I Don't Want To Go Home as "the heaviest drummer of them all, in terms of both poundage and sheer sonic impact, Biiiiig Baaaaad Bobby Williams, badass king of hearts so tough he'd go to the limit for you every time, all night."
