11, 1962, John Joseph Adams & Otilia Yvonne
Adams gave birth to a 9 lb. 1oz. baby boy - their second child – and named him Robin Carlton Adams (RCA).
age 8, a straight A student, RCA along with his brother John constructed 2 guitars made from cardboard, paper stuffing, wood,
and rubber bands – and “rehearsed”
the music of The Jackson 5; the music played from a cardboard and vinyl record cut from the back of a cereal box…the rest is music
1973, RCA and John formed the band Scorpio along with cousins Eric on drums and
Ronald on guitar. RCA played a bass created from an electric guitar with the E and
B strings removed, and John played an Emenee
Electric Air Organ, a toy organ powered by an air fan.Scorpio, later that year won second place in a local elementary
school talent show and the group expanded to 12 members, all friends and relatives. “Our
parents were so proud, they went out and bought us real instruments,” laughs RCA.
“Pretty soon we were just like Earth, Wind & Fire – costumes and all!”
thereafter, Scorpio became The Scorpio Band
1975, TSB made its first movie, The Scorpion’s
Sting and thus was the start of Robin C. Adams’ career as a filmmaker. For the next 7 years Adams wrote, produced and directed over 10 short films – with the help of friends and family cast as actors. In
the summer of 1976 “Kidsworld” the nationally syndicated CBS television
series written and hosted by kids, purchased one of RCA’s movies entitled, “Super-T”
for $100 which “…at the time was a hell of a lot of money for a 15
year-old filmmaker!” says, Adams who knew exactly what his career would be for the next 25 years….
