In 1965, “My Girl” became their first #1 pop and R&B hit, and their first signature song. They hit no. 1 R&B again with “Get Ready” in 1966. In 1972, “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone” hit #1 pop and won two Grammys. In total, The Temptations can
claim 43 Top 10 R&B singles (14 #1) and 17 pop Top 10s (four #1). In 1989, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Temptations’ new millennium success has included the Grammy-winning Ear-Resistable (2000) as well as Awesome (2001) and Legacy (2004). Reflections, released in 2006, received a Grammy nomination for their version of Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You).” Their latest album was 2010’s Still Here. Otis Williams, the only original member still living, continues to perform with The Temptations’ line up consisting of Terry Weeks, Ron Tyson, Larry Braggs and Willie Green. Interviews are available now with The Temptations’ Otis Williams.
The Four Tops were founded in Detroit, Michigan as The Four Aims. Lead singer Levi Stubbs and groupmates Abdul “Duke” Fakir, Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Lawrence Payton remained together for over four decades, having gone from 1953 until 1997 without a single change in personnel. Their hit singles included two Billboard Hot 100 number-one hits, “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)” and “Reach Out I’ll Be There.” When Motown left Detroit in 1972 to move to Los Angeles, California, the Tops stayed in Detroit, where they continued to have charting singles into the late-1970s. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999. Fakir is the only surviving founding member of the original group and is joined by Ronnie McNeir, Lawrence Payton, Jr. and Harold Bonhart.
Interviews are available now with The Four Tops’ Duke Fakir.
The Spinners were formed in Ferndale, Michigan in 1954. They recorded “It’s a Shame,” “Truly Yours” and “I’ll Always Love You” – all hits on the Motown label before joining Atlantic Records.

Back to You” and “Cupid.” Today, original member Henry Fambrough is joined onstage by lead singer Charlton Washington, Marvin Taylor, Ronnie Moss and Jessie Peck. Interviews are available now with The Spinners’ Henry Fambrough.
The Stylistics was formed in Philadelphia, PA in 1966. Herbert Murrell and Airrion Love are the remaining original members of The Stylistics. Friends since junior high school, Herb and Airrion have managed to keep their institution of `70s music alive. They scored 12 straight top ten R&B hits, including “You Are Everything,” “Betcha by Golly, Wow,” “I’m Stone in Love with You,” “Break Up to Make Up” and “You Make Me Feel Brand New.” The current lineup of the Stylistics also includes Eban Brown and Jason Sharp.
