Abdul ‘Duke’ Fakir

Abdul ‘Duke’ Fakir was a founding member of the Four Tops back in 1953 – the only original Top still alive and is 86 years on Boxing Day.

He is still performing with the group with three other members, one of which includes Lawrence Payton Jr. who is the son of original member Lawrence Payton.

Let’s remember their cover of the Left Banke’s Walk Away Renee which entered the UK chart at this time in 1967.
