Bobby Caldwell, the singer-songwriter who mastered a range of genres, died on Tuesday, his wife Mary said. He was 71 years old.

Although no official cause of death has been released, his wife told NBC News that he died of fluoroquinolone toxicity after an antibiotic prescribed to him in 2017 took “hazard havoc. on his body.

“He was prescribed this with a runny nose and cough and it should never have happened but it did and it’s irreversible if you’re really affected like him,” she said. “It’s only taking its toll.”

THE The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning in 2016 regarding the use of fluoroquinolone in the treatment of “less severe” bacterial infections due to the disabling side effects associated with it. Warning labels were also updated in 2013 to include potentially irreversible nerve damage caused by the drug.

Consumers may be most familiar with Cipro, a brand name variant of quinolone antibiotics.

Influenced by artists such as Nat King Cole and the Beatles, Caldwell set his sights on a career in music at the age of 17 and went on to write and sing hits such as “What You Won’t Do for Love and “My Flame.” His parents were also singers who hosted a musical variety show, according to the biography on his site.

Caldwell’s ability to draw from multiple genres, including jazz and R&B, has given his catalog longevity. His song “What You Won’t Do for Love” was sampled by Boyz II Men in 1997 for their song “To the Limit”, nearly 20 years after the hit was released.

Rapper Biggie Smalls also sampled Caldwell in the 1990s, using “My Flame” in his hit “Sky’s the Limit”, which was later used in a biopic about Small’s life and career.

Caldwell lived in New Jersey and is survived by his wife and daughters.
