THE FOUR TOPS STAR LEVI STUBBS DIES

All the greats seem to leaving us……
Levi Stubbs, whose distinctive, rough-hewn voice and pleading vocal style elevated the Four Tops’ soul classics to masterpieces, died today at his Detroit home. He was 72.

The Michigan native had been in ill health since being diagnosed with cancer in 1995. A stroke and other health problems led him to stop touring in 2000.

Stubbs was born in Detroit and grew up with the future Tops in the city’s North End. Stubbs and Abdul “Duke” Fakir sang together in a group while attending Pershing High School, while Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Lawrence Payton attended Detroit’s Northern High.  Source

Rest In Peace Levi Stubbs
