Baby Boomers: Levi Stubbs from The Four Tops

No real estate on Thursdays...

Sadly, some recent editions on our baby boomer days have noted the deaths of those we grew up with. Isaac Hayes passed away in August, while Norman Whitfield, the Motown Producer behind The Temptations died in late September.

This past week, Levi Stubbs, a name most of us will not know, but a voice we will not forget died in his sleep at the age of 72.

Stubbs was the booming lead baritone for Motown stars The Four Tops, who had 21 top 40 hits from 1964-1973. Uniquely, The Four Tops did not undergo any changes in personnel from their formation around 1954, until the death of Lawrence Payton in 1997.

Because no one loves American soul music like the British, here is what The Telegraph had to say on October 20.

Their first song to make the charts, topping out at # 11 in the year 1964, Baby I Need Your Lovin'.
