David Robinson (born April 2, 1949, Malden, Massachusetts) is an American rock drummer. He has performed with many rock bands including The Rising Tide, The Modern Lovers, The Pop!, DMZ and The Cars.
He attended Woburn Memorial High School.
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. After completion of Move Like This, Robinson said that he would be interested in working on more studio albums.
Robinson now runs an art gallery in Rockport, Massachusetts where he sells jewelry that he makes himself.
