He attended Woburn Memorial High School.

Robinson came up with The Cars' band name [6] and is credited for designing the album covers. He painted the checkered flag for The Cars' 1980 album, Panorama.

After the break up of The Cars, Robinson ran a restaurant.[7]

In 2010, Robinson reunited with the surviving original members of The Cars to record their first album in 24 years, titled Move Like This. He had to relearn how to play the drums due to having stopped playing in 1987 aside from loose jamming on the congas.[8] After completion of Move Like This, Robinson said that he would be interested in working on more studio albums.[9]

Robinson now runs an art gallery where he sells jewellery that he makes himself.[10]
