Pavel Bobek was born in 1937 and graduated from the grammar school, his classmate was also Jan Kaplický. At the Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering, as well as all his contemporaries, he dropped rock and roll and began to sing with FAPS faculty. As a trained engineer, the architect joined the Big Brother Company, where he worked in one project group with his college colleagues Rangers and the radio debriefing Mirko Černý and Petr Nárožný.

From 1963 to 1965 he sang with the band Olympic, and in 1967 he joined the Semafor where he worked until 1990. He was one of the first in Czechoslovakia to sing and promote rock and roll, first in English, followed by Czech lyrics, he always carefully selected and as the first Czech singer he became, in the true sense of the word, the "interpreter" of many famous American songs.

Critics appreciated his credible and informal gift of interpretation, which was further enhanced by the singing and punishing emphasis on a careful Czech translation of the original English texts.

The breakthrough for Paul Bob was a meeting with singer Johnny Cash
, whom he met personally at the American Embassy in 1978. He then sang together at the Prague Cash Concert, which he commented on for Czech TV.

Following was the intimate album " Circles ," released as a singer of life.
