The Spinners Lead Singer Passes at 76
The Spinners aka The Detroit Spinners lost it's 4th original member, Bobby (Bobbie) Smith on Saturday, March 16th.
It's so sad when you find that one of your favorite artists have died. The Thursday prior to his passing, I was one of the lucky ones to have just seen The Spinners perform here in the Seattle area. During the show, t was announced that Bobby was feeling under the weather and would not be a part of that evening's show. I was so disappointed because having been brought up at the height of The Spinners career, I was looking forward to seeing Bobby sing some of my favorite songs, such as "I'll Be Around," "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love," "Games People Play" and others.
This great artist will be missed!
Condolences to his family, friends and fellow members of The Spinners.
