Sad news. I love the Four Tops. "I Can't Help Myself" and "Reach Out (I'll Be There)" are two of my favourite songs of all time.

The Four Tops made some of the greatest vocal soul ever. Reach Out I'll Be There, Standing In The Shadows of Love and Ain't No Woman (Like The One I've Got) are essential listening.
