Levi Stubbs: 1936-2008

Just learned that Mr. Stubbs, the Four Tops' lead singer, died at the age of 72. I was stunned to learn he was, well, that old. First Isaac Hayes and now Levi. As a lover of all things old-school soul, I'm seriously saddened. In honor of Mr. Stubbs, here are a couple of clips of the Tops at their commercial height.

RIP Levi. You've earned it.
