The current lineup consists of Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Joe Herndon, and Bruce Williamson.
The Four Tops had their first Motown hit with "Baby I need Your Loving" in 1964, their soulful and bittersweet songs continually gained success. "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)," was a smash in 1965, and is one of Motown's longest-running chart toppers.
