Bobby Womack was the third of five sons of Naomi Womack and Friendly Womack, and grew up in Cleveland slums in a family so poor that they had to eat from the trash can, and Bobby had to share a bed with his brothers. Bobby’s father owned a guitar and repeatedly told him and his brothers not to touch it while he was at work, but on one occasion Bobby broke the string and replaced it with a shoelace. When Friendly noticed that Bobby’s missing a shoelace, he offered his son a chance to play his way out of trouble and he impressed. Soon after, Friendly bought guitars for all of his sons.

In the mid-50s, Bobby toured across the Midwest with his brothers when Sam Cooke saw them and became their mentor, helping them on tour and securing them a tour with The Staple Singers, so Bobby decided to drop out of the high school aged 16 and pursue a career in music. In 1960, Cooke founded the SAR Records and signed the Womack brothers to the label in 1961, later changing their name to the Valentinos and relocating them to Los Angeles, California. Bobby subsequently moved to Memphis in 1965 and began working on his solo career, and in 1969 released his debut album entitled “Fly Me to the Moon”.

His first album toachieve commercial success was “Communication” in 1971, reaching No. 83 on Billboard Pop Albums, No. 7 on Billboard Top Soul Albums, and No. 20 on Billboard Top Jazz Albums. Bobby’s next release, “Understanding” (1972) peaked at No. 43 on Billboard Pop Albums and No. 7 on Billboard Top Soul Albums, while the singles “Woman’s Gotta Have It”, “Sweet Caroline (Good Times Never Seemed So Good)”, and “Harry Hippie” were among the most popular. Womack continued with recording, so he released “Facts of Life” (1974) and “Lookin’ for a Love Again” (1974), both of which were commercially successful and helped him to increase his net worth significantly.

Womack’s career started to go downhill in the ‘80s, but his album “The Poet (1981) managed to peak at No. 29 position on Billboard Pop Albums chart, and topped the Billboard Top Black Albums, while the songs “Secrets”, “If You Think You’re Lonely Now”, and “Where Do We Go From Here” entered pop charts as well. In the ‘90s, Womack released three more albums: “Resurrection” (1994), “Back to My Roots” (1999), and “Traditions” (1999), but none of them could repeat the success of predecessors. His last album was “The Bravest Man in the Universe” in 2012.

Regarding his personal life, Bobby Womack was married to Barbara Campbell from 1965 to 1970 and had a son with her, Vincent, who committed suicide in 1986, aged 21. From 1976 to 1978, he was married to Regina Banks and had two sons, one of whom died only four months old, while from his relationship with Jody Laba, Bobby had two sons. Womack had a cocaine addiction throughout most of the ‘80s and his career suffered because of it, but by the end of the decade, he went to a rehabilitation centre and has been clean since. However, the drug abuse left the big mark on him, so he suffered from diabetes, prostate cancer, pneumonia, colon cancer, and showed early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Womack died at his home in Tarzana, California on the 24th June 2014.

He was named after Sam's and Barbara's son who accidentally drowned in a swimming pool at 18 months in 1963. Vincent committed suicide in 1988 at age 21 in front of his mother Barbara in her living room because he was despondent that his girlfriend had left him.

8 His wife, Barbara, was the widow of the singer/producer Sam Cooke (murdered December 11, 1964). Sam and Barbara Cooke's daughter, Linda M. Womack, married Cecil D. Womack, Bobby's brother.

Womack and Linda M. Womack.
