Levi Stubbs RIP

17 Oct

A singer with one of the greatest voices in pop music has died. Levi Stubbs lead singer of The Four Tops died today at his home in Detroit at the age of 72. A singer is only as good as the songs and in this case the combination of Stubbs, the other Tops and the Motown songwriting stable they were an unstoppable musical force.
