Quote cbrady: I am sorry this is a dumb question but who is Smokey Robinson? I hope someone can answer this for me.
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.
