RETROKIMMER'S 3 FAVORITE 4 TOPS TUNES



I loved the Temptations but I really had a mad crush on Levi Stubbs. Luckily I got to meet him at the Rotunda Night Club at the Hyatt Regency in Dearborn around 1977. He was so sweet to me and all his fans that night. Wish I had thought to ask for his autograph.

The Four Tops are an American vocal quartet, whose repertoire has included doo-wop, jazz, soul music, R&B, disco, adult contemporary, hard rock, and showtunes. Founded in Detroit, Michigan as The Four Aims, lead singer Levi Stubbs (born Levi Stubbles, a cousin of Jackie Wilson and brother of The Falcons' Joe Stubbs), and groupmates Abdul "Duke" Fakir, Renaldo "Obie" Benson and Lawrence Payton remained together for over four decades, having gone from 1953 until 1997 without a single change in personnel.
