Robert Gordon grew up in Bethesda, Maryland. At the age of nine, he was greatly inspired by the Elvis Presley song “Heartbreak Hotel” playing on radio and decided to pursue a career as a Rock & Roll musician at that young age.
His influences included Gene Vincent, Jack Scott, Billy Lee Riley, Eddie Cochran and other notable rock ‘n roll music artists of the period. He made his recording debut at age 17 in 1964 with a group called the Confidentials. The Confidentials, with Robert (called Bob at the time) as the singer, recorded the songs “Summertime,” “Money,” and “There is Something on Your Mind,” among others on acetate phonograph discs.
