Levi Stubbs’ Tears Are Dry Now

When the news flashed today about the death of Four Tops lead singer Levi Stubbs, the first thing I thought of was the Billy Bragg song, “Levi Stubbs Tears.”

It speaks volumes to the influence that an artist like Levi Stubbs had on music that a Brit like Bragg would reference him so prominently, and effectively, in song.

As usual, Bob Lefsetz said it much better than I could in a recent post about Stubbs on The Lefsetz Letter.
