Warren “Pete” Moore has died at the age of 78. The late-singer was a member of The Miracles with Smokey Robinson, Claudette Robinson and Robert “Bobby” Rogers. He also co-wrote hits such as “The Tracks of My Tears”, “The Tears Of A Clown” and “Ooo Baby Baby” for the group. Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. had this to say about the singer in Rolling Stone: “I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Warren ‘Pete’ Moore, a fine human being and valued member of the Motown family … He was a quiet spirit with a wonderful bass voice behind Smokey Robinson’s soft, distinctive lead vocals and was co-writer on several of the Miracles hits.”
No cause of death has been revealed.
