I just got the news that one of the original Spinners, Bobby Smith has died from lung cancer at age 76. He was diagnosed just last year. One of his last national TV appearances was on David Letterman about 4 years ago. Bobby's the one singing lead on "I'll Be Around."
And they stole the show at the Moondog Coronation Ball in 2011. I was lucky enough to get to interview them before they went on stage and tore it up. Bobby's to the far left of the screen. Thanks for the music Bobby and it was an honor to meet you.
