Personalities | Tom Robinson | Seventies | Rock
(Guitar, vocals, b. 1950)
As leader of The Tom Robinson Band, this British new wave singer-songwriter first broke through with â€˜2-4-6-8 Motorwayâ€™ a 1977 hit single that was unrepresentative of the socio-political thrust of many of his songs, such as the anthemic â€˜Glad To Be Gayâ€™. After two albums, he formed Sector 27 then went solo in 1982 when â€˜War Babyâ€™ was a Top 10 hit. Robinson, who declared himself bisexual and became a parent, subsequently became a radio DJ.
