SOUTHFIELD, Michigan (AP) - Bobby Rogers, a founding member of the Motown group The Miracles and a collaborator with Smokey Robinson, has died. He was 73.

Motown Museum board member Allen Rawls says Rogers died Sunday morning at his home.

Rogers had been ill for several years. He lived in the Detroit suburb of Southfield.

Rogers formed the group in 1956 with cousin Claudette Rogers, Pete Moore, Ronnie White and Robinson. Their hits included "I Second That Emotion" and "The Tears of a Clown." Rogers and The Miracles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

He shared songwriting credits with Robinson on The Temptations' "The Way You Do the Things You Do," The Contours' "First I Look at the Purse" and The Miracles' "Going to a Go-Go."
