Nolan Strong & Diablos were recruited for Motown, but declined.

This is a very interesting article about Nolan Strong and the Diablos. The group was inducted into the Michigan Rock and Roll legends early 2019. I do not recall any coverage on the forum about this occurrence.

There is a small explanation of how the group was under consideration to sign with Motown but never did. Too bad.

I also learned something I had wanted to know about Nolan. Barrett Strong is a cousin of Nolan's. Their major hit, The Wind, is far superior to that of the Jesters. It is a good song though.


Legend has it that Smokey Robinson was a huge fan of the Diablos.

Maxine Powell. On Tammii Terrell

Was doing a little online research on my girl Tammi and found an article on Maxine Powell. In the article she stated that Tammi lived in a "fantasy" world. I take that to mean that maybe Mrs Powell thought maybe that Tammi's goals & dreams were fantasy's? She didn't elaborate...I don't know how to cut & paste the article here
