Levi Stubbs looks like he's having a shave...
:blink: He does.

Or perhaps he's very bad at eating ice cream.

I was surprised he didn't get more of a mention but then with the current financial situation I doubt even the Queen would rate more than half a page. OK maybe I exaggerate there but you get my drift.

And one last point, as he's been dead over a week when are we going to see Deathlists unique obit on the front page?

Must say I was very surprised that his death didn't get much of a
mention in the UK press. He had a fine voice. RIP Levi

Never being bothered about the Four Tops, Stubbs only came to my attention when he voiced the plant in "Little Shop of Horrors". I thought his voice was really cool and checked the credits to find out who it was. A bit sad being eighteen at the time and not knowing his proper job, but there you have it.

Lots of possibilties for the headline but I think Billy Bragg's contribution has to be selected

Something along the lines of "Pop of the Top" might have worked out ok with a bit more thought

If the "top" had topped himself it would have worked better. And I believe T.O.P. can also mean time of passing, ie time of death

Thanks Welshman. It just came to me in a flash of inspiration!

My idiocy only lasted about 2 minutes, how did you catch me :-) ?
