Former Homeless Rock Star and Evansville Native Bobby Hayden Jr. Bringing Inspirational Story Home

He’s played with the likes of Heart, Paul Revere and the Raiders, and Ozzy Osbourne. He lived the rock ‘n’ roll dream, and it nearly cost him everything. Now, Evansville’s own Bobby Hayden Jr. is coming home to share his music along with the story of how he bounced back from addiction and living in a cardboard box.

His story reads like so many other musicians. After finding success with his musical talents, Hayden’s life spiraled out of control. The mix of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll led him down a path of cocaine and heroin addiction, and eventually living in a cardboard box on a street corner in Los Angeles. As he told Alabama.com back in March, he voluntarily cleaned a Taco Bell bathroom in exchange for food and panhandled to make money he would use to buy more drugs, until a chance encounter with a baker led him to rehab and a relationship with God.

Hayden will bring his “Rockin’ it for Life” show to Pleasant Chapel located at 1305 W. Florida Street for four shows on Saturday, January 19th at 6PM and Sunday, January 20th at 10am and 11:30am. Tickets are FREE and available now by calling 812-457-5230.
