As the son of vocalist Gloria Loring and Growing Pains' Alan Thicke, Robin Thicke grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles during the '80s and '90s. Thicke credits his dad for motivating him to immerse himself in all kinds of pop music. Thicke began his meteroic rise in 2009 after his fourth almbum Sex Therapy was released and he followed that with Love After War in 2011. The title track of his most recent album Blurred Lines was the hit of the summer.
Thicke will be in Boston for one night this March at Agganis Arena.
