Warren "Pete" Moore is best-known as the bass vocalist of the Miracles who co-wrote some of their R&B smash hits like "Ain't That Peculiar" and "Going to a Go-Go." Born in Detroit, MI, in 1939, Moore became a member of a vocal group while in high school in the mid-'50s. This group -- which included William "Smokey" Robinson -- started out as the Five Chimes, but had changed their name to the Matadors by 1956 when they auditioned with Jackie Wilson's manager Nat Tarnopol. This didn't turn out to be the group's big break, but they did catch the attention of Wilson's songwriter Berry Gordy, Jr. Thus started what would become a ride of success for the band. The Miracles became successful on Gordy's Tamla label with many hits, starting in 1960. By 1967, with the increasing popularity of one member, their name was changed to Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. Robinson left in the early '70s to pursue his solo career, but the Miracles continued on through the late '70s. Over the years, Moore had co-written several of the band's biggest hits, including "Tracks of My Tears," "Ooo Baby Baby," "Since I Lost My Baby," "Ain't That Peculiar," and "Going to a Go-Go." In addition to his role as singer and songwriter, Moore worked as a producer and continued to do so in Detroit after the Miracles called it quits. Among the albums he produced were releases for Robinson, Marvin Gaye, and Diana Ross & the Supremes. ~ Joslyn Layne, Rovi
