Levi Stubbs, without question, one of the greatest lead singers EVER and a real class act!

I loved the Four Tops. They were such a class act. Levi Stubbs voice was so wonderful. I think they and the Temptations were the best groups of Motown. It just hasn't been the same since Levi left the group when he got sick. I saw them every time they came to Chicago during the 80's and 90's

Because the Four Tops maintained the integrity of their sound by staying together for over 40 years, Levi Stubb's powerful, passionate, and perfect pitched baritone is the sound of Motown. NO ONE was ever better.

Tears on my pillow, joy in my heart.

Always loved the Tops. Great songs. Class acts all the way around. Levi Stubbs had one of the great voices of all time. Gone, but never forgotten. Will always have a warm spot in my heart for these guys.

A one of a kind voice has been silenced, but thankfully the music will always live on. Thanks for all the wonderful music.
