R.I.P. Levi Stubbs

Well, we really are standing in the shadows of love now. The greatest R & B voice ever has been stilled. Levi Stubbs, the lead singer of the Four Tops, passed away today.

We will always have the music and it will always hit that same sweet spot. No one said it better than Billy Bragg:

When the world falls apart some things stay in place
She takes off the Four Tops tape and puts it back in its case
When the world falls apart some things stay in place
Levi Stubbs’ tears run down his face.
