*Independently and unbeknownst to one another, two well-known publications released separate articles this week on Smokey Robinson and his former wife Claudette.
First, national publication Jamsource/Runway Magazine of Houston Texas released a cover feature of Claudette on Tuesday September 11th, and the Los Angeles Sentinel released an interview of Smokey on Thursday September 13th.
Both articles referred to each subject as the ‘Quiet Storm.’
Claudette, who has a forthcoming autobiography, offers some insight into the life she and Smokey once shared during the early days of Motown.
Smokey is promoting two September venues where he will be performing in Los Angeles – one of which will feature him reciting his own poetry.
Fans are urged to pick up a copy of the Los Angeles Sentinel and Jamsource/Runway at local newsstands where available (articles may also be found on the internet).
Another coincidence: this year marks the 50th anniversary of The Miracles’ hit song “You’ve Really Got A Hold On Me.” What a miracle for fans of these two Motown icons!
Jamsource editor/publisher Carolyn Baker says, “we’ve already got a huge buzz on Claudette here in Houston after my live on air interview with DJ Wash Allen on radio station KCOH!”
