When Smokey Robinson, the legendary R&B singer and songwriter, told us on the phone that he was a fan of Lady Gaga, we weren't surprised. First of all, he appeared recently on The Voice, so he's not out of the loop, and these days, thanks to TiVo, even our parents know more about Rihanna and Chris Brown than we do.
Smokey's something special. And everything this Motown Miracle had to say, we listened and learned. A day before his Hard Rock show tomorrow night, we talked about Robinson's time singing on TV with Nicholas David, his love of Nelly, and the evolution of music.
