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?

It was not worth the wait.


You're right, Welshman. Rather under-par. Levi Stubbs looks like he's having a shave...

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

PS well done HCW (see 12th success poll)


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


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


2 minutes... and 42 years.



Anyhow, by way of a little tribute to a great singer, here's Levi and his Stubbettes (with a cameo from Legs & Co as librarians mysteriously beamed up by Scotty) struttin' their funky stuff sho nuff on Shindig!

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
