People are still amazed by the Magic that was Motown and how really small the Famous the Studio, " The Hit Factory", really is! Definitely worth a visit when in Detroit.Diana Ross is a people person. My life partner lived a block or so from the Motown Studios on West Grand Ave next to Henry Ford Hospital as a kid. He was coming home from the store and ran into Tammy Tyrell and her on the sidewalk. He knew who Tammy Tyrell was but not Diana Ross. Well he was the spitting image of little Opie Taylor (Ron Howard) with red hair and all. Diana Ross and Tammy Tyrell both bent over and gave him a kiss on the cheek. Marvin Gaye and Smokey Robinson were sitting on the porch.
I was in Houston one time when The Motown Review was playing there, and the above named people plus Stevie Wonder ( then known as Little Stevie Wonder)were staying in the Hotel I was at, a rare occurrence considering they were Black and it was still the 60s!
I was having Breakfast in the Hotel Cafe and the Supremes and Smokey Robinson were @ the next table, very nice folks, posed for pictures ( remember Brownie Cameras?), signed autographs and talked with customers and staff.
