I've been coming back here a couple of times a day to see if you posted yet. I'm back in LA, but I had the most incredible time imaginable, and one of the high points of the evening was meeting you, after listening to your set. I am now a fan!!!
And what you've said about Levi - all so true. What a great man, and his family is just as great as he is!!!
Hugs and kisses Spyder....

I thought you and the band blew the house down on Wednesday Night. What a great night of music for a great cause, God bless Levi Stubbs and his family! Kudo's to the Roostertail, Steve, David, all the acts and yourself for all the behind the scenes work.
|By SisDetroit (220.127.116.11) on Monday, March 01, 2004 - 01:56 pm:|
Spyder - The weather in February was great, so if the weather holds out, I will be there to see you perform on another great show.
|By StingBeeLee (18.104.22.168) on Monday, March 01, 2004 - 02:43 pm:|
I also met Spyder at the tribute, and although the band did not come down with him, he did an accpella song "Unforgetable" and dedicated it to Levi. I shook hands with Spyder and thanked him for the song, and he said "No, No, No, thank you for coming out and supporting Levi!" To come down and then sing accapella is remarkable, but thats the kind of night it was, all of the artists and the legends coming out to support Levi and his family. Everyone was gracious to their fans.
|By SisDetroit (22.214.171.124) on Monday, March 01, 2004 - 03:24 pm:|
StingBeeLee - You are correct about the artist. They were so absolutely wonderful. I cannot believe the love that was in the place that night. Levi truly know now, how much we love him.
Spyder, everyone was saying how you tore up the Upperdeck. They said after you tore it up, there was nothing left for anybody else, and that you went to the Lowerdeck to finish the job. (LOL)
|By SPYDER (126.96.36.199) on Monday, March 01, 2004 - 09:08 pm:|
HI SIS,STINGBEELEE, AND WILLY, I AM SO THANKFUL FOR YOUR COMMENTS, BUT YOU KNOW ROCKING TIL I'M SATISFIED IS WHAT I'M ABOUT......MUCHO BLESSINGS TO YA'LL,,,,,,,,,,,,SPYDER
|By SPYDER (188.8.131.52) on Monday, March 01, 2004 - 10:32 pm:|
HEY GUYS, WE NOW HAVE ALL MY PICS FROM THE LEVI LIVE PARTY ON MY SIGHT
|By SisDetroit (184.108.40.206) on Tuesday, March 02, 2004 - 12:22 am:|
Spyder - I should have gone on up to the Upperdeck. Perhaps I could have gotten some of those hugs you were giving Paula. :o)
Ali & Sherrie looks as if they were a pair with those similar fur coats.

Thanks for the url, David. Just love that picture of the Vandellas. Now I've gotta get hold of a copy!

HEY SISDETROIT, HOW DO I GET TO YOUR SITE?
|By SisDetroit (188.8.131.52) on Saturday, March 06, 2004 - 02:10 pm:|
Spyder - Sorry I missed you at Greektown. Yesterday, my electricity went out so I had to stay home.
Just in case you missed the link posted by DMeikle to the webpage, here it is. Of course, it's not professional, but I had fun putting it together. :o)
|By Gee (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, March 06, 2004 - 10:16 pm:|
Great Job on the website Sis
|By Soul Sister (220.127.116.11) on Saturday, March 06, 2004 - 10:34 pm:|
You did that??? Not professional??? What are you talking about??? It looks very professional to me!!! WOW! It's a great site, Sis!!! You can be proud, good Job!!!
|By Juicefree20 (18.104.22.168) on Saturday, March 06, 2004 - 10:49 pm:|
Sis, I respectfully ask you, what's wrong with you????? . You did a hell of a job for something done from scratch!!! Please show me how to make one from scratch too. I'm afraid to see what's gonna happen when you go professional, SisDetroits 3D website .
Seriously Sis, excellent website, I saw it earlier & I didn't know that it was yours. Again, that's one hell of a job Sis!!
|By SisDetroit (22.214.171.124) on Saturday, March 06, 2004 - 10:52 pm:|
Thanks Guys & Gals!! (Smiling)
|By Scooby (126.96.36.199) on Tuesday, March 09, 2004 - 04:45 am:|
My name is Derek and I was at the Levi party. I had a ball!! I was able to see a lot of Motown alumni, a lot of ppeople that I've gotten to be cool with. The highlight of the night for me was meeting Ms. Cindy Birdsong. What a thrill!!! She has a very sweet disposition, and still sounds good. Any additional Motown conversation will be welcome. E-mail me at
40 ounces of love,

AW SHUCKS, YOU 'RE GONNA MAKE ME BLUSH
|By Eugene Brown (22.214.171.124) on Monday, March 15, 2004 - 07:31 pm:|
Hello everybody...I'm Eugene Brown I "spun" the music on the second floor at the Roostertail Party... and what an honor...Working with Roleen and seeing Spyder (Hey Spyder what about....) and the rest of the Motown Family, many of whom I know. From a worker's perspective it was a trying evening, but when all was said and done it was definitely a labor of love...
|By ~medusa~ (126.96.36.199) on Friday, March 19, 2004 - 09:28 pm:|
Hey,what was the Female MC's name on the first floor, she was so very nice...
|By Gee (188.8.131.52) on Friday, March 19, 2004 - 11:52 pm:|
I think you are talking about Rolean I think thats how you spell her name. She is a wonderful person and lives in LA.
|By Gee (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, March 20, 2004 - 01:06 am:|
The correct spelling of her name is Rolene I just found out
|By SPYDER (220.127.116.11) on Saturday, March 20, 2004 - 06:08 pm:|
I first met Rolene back in the seventies when she was working for Norman Whitfield, she was cool then and is still a dynomite person
|By ~medusa~ (18.104.22.168) on Sunday, March 21, 2004 - 05:07 pm:|
..and Sis, I meant to tell U this...
Aint nothing wrong with your site...You did a GRERRRRRT Job.
|By SisDetroit (22.214.171.124) on Sunday, March 21, 2004 - 05:27 pm:|
Thanks Medusa. You are one of the stars of the show.
|By Grammylove (126.96.36.199) on Thursday, March 25, 2004 - 02:53 am:|
Hello, You don't know me, I just clicked on your address. I am sitting here on the phone with Spyder and getting a kick outta all the messages. I have known Spydie for quite a long time.
So......... the 40 oz comment, where would the 40 oz come from? Would that be cold brewed or home made? Or does it take 40 oz's to get there?
Spyder has no comment on the 40 oz. But says thank you for the thoughts!
Getting a little giddy I guess concidering it's 2:00 am his time right now.
I'll have to take your word on a great show. Sorry I wasn't able to be there. I miss him a lot.
You will have to tell me more of what you thought of him.
Thank you for the entertainment of writing you.

These pix of the special tributes to LEVI STUBBS & THE FOUR TOPS "50th Anniversary" are worth a re-look or a first look if U are new to the forum and many looks in either case above. Unlike "M-45", U will actually see 3 -- not 2 -- SUPREMES: JEAN TERRELL, CINDY BIRDSONG and SCHERRIE PAYNE (Miss MARI WILSON was unable to attend, home in N.Y. w/ a flu or something, however, she sent flowers and a very special letter to Levi). U will also see a couple of VANDELLAS and a MARVELETTE, plus THE VELVELETTES performing. U will also see the last known public photo of the late JOHNNY BRISTOL. Plus, many S.D. Boardmembers including MEDUSA with the fierce eye make-up and endless photos of Mr. WENDAL.
To get the full benefit and effect, U must visit all 3 weblinks that are included in the posts to see all the wonderful pix. Enjoy and be well LEVI; it's true, U are The Tops!
