When Motown's Berry Gordy Jr. found out they had hustled a national appearance on "The Tonight Show," he signed them without an audition to be the marquee act for the company's Workshop Jazz label. Their first Motown hit, "Baby, I Need Your Loving" in 1964, made them stars. "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)," a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown's longest-running chart toppers. It was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, "It's The Same Old Song." Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy, "Reach Out I'll Be There," "Standing In The Shadows of Love," and "Bernadette." In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, The Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Though they would no longer have hits on record, the group continued to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly. The band's current lineup is Ronnie McNeir, Roquel Payton, Harold "Spike" Bonhart, and Abdul "Duke" Fakir, the only surviving founding member of the group.
