Don't apologize, when I started buying his music he was 'Smokey Robinson and the Miracles', he is from my era....but you may know some of his other music, from the last couple of decades? You can look him up on amazon.com maybe. He has sparkly eyes, and a great voice. Quite the big star for days, as well as the upcoming x'mas singer. I think Smokey was a guest on Idol a couple of years back.

He's just not of your era. No problem. Smokey Robinson was at the core of the success of early Motown. Not only was he the founder and lead singer of The Miracles (before they were "Smokey Robinson and the Miracles"), he is one of SONGWRITERS of that dynasty, who shaped the music and words and flavor that was Motown. He not only wrote for the Miracles (Second that Emotion, Tears of a Clown, More Love), but he penned hits for The Temptations and Supremes, etc. Please Google! You might find it interesting.
