    Cherrelle still performs regularly. She's on Facebook as Cherrelle Walton and is going to be at the Essence Music Festival this summer.

    Pebbles goes by the name Sister Perri and is an evangelist. She has a website www.sisterperri.com She's also on FB, but, unlike Cherrelle, hers is just a fansite that she occassionally pops in on.

    Hi Tallone!

    All the artists that you listed are still performing, and some of them even had or will have CDs released - Jeffrey, Dionne and Bobby, at least.

    Best regards

    Interesting thread...

    Below is a link to a nice story about Lester Chambers of The Chambers Brothers. He was recently homeless until word of his plight got out. Supposedly, even Yoko Ono stepped up to help him. He will be honored at Yohsis in San Francisco later this month (see link below)

    Sweet Relief is a organization that assists musicians who have fallen on hard times. The older artists/musicians who made little to NO money back in the day are especially hit hard.

    Another artist I've wondered about is Sugar Pie DeSanto, who a few years back tragically lost her husband when her home burned down in Oakland, CA.

    Tallone, Dionne Warwick recently did a stint on the reality show Celebrity Apprentice and by the time she was fired from the show, she became for a bit, one of the most hated women on American Television.

    Whatever happened to CheChe and Peppe (I think I spelled it correctly) who were on Buddha and had a hit called "I Know,
    I Know I'm In Love" and an lp also. They performed on American Bandstand at the time. They were two young kids,
    brother and sister, and they named themselves after their two dogs.
    Anyone?

    been able to get in contact with any one since2004.
    If anyone has any information about them please contact me.(dUKE)

    Whatever happened to Three Ounces of Love? Also, what did the Lollipops sing? What label were they on?

  19. #69
    I always wonder what happened to Carl Holmes of Carl Holmes & The Commandos. They had a song called "Hey It's Love" back by "It's Been A Long Time." I could never find any information on him or the group when searching.

    Shirley ELLis left the biz and I think became a social worker-NYC. Lollipops were on VIP.

    You mean MDLT-Willis....I've been fascinated with them since I learned of them about a year ago. The maddening thing is that there is nothing on the net about them post 1974! Someone claimed to have known them on a Youtube message board and I wrote him. he replied:

    "This response is a year late. To answer your questions, they are in their fifties now with living in Los Angeles. All of them have grown children, some have grandchildren. One of the women passed in 2005. That's all I really care to say."

    Mr. June, I used to follow them around back in the day. The correct name was Carl Holmes and the Commanders who later changed the name to the Sherlock Holmes Experience or something like that. I came across his niece about 10 years ago and she said he had arthritis in his hands and was no longer playing the guitar. At one point he had a girl in his band that looked and sounded just like James Brown! Seriously! Besides the band that McFadden & Whitehead had, Carl Holmes was #2 in my book! (Those where the days when you had live bands in the clubs!)

    Thanks Nosey. That was interesting indeed. I'll bet you could write a book on the folks you know or known.

    Didn't see Tevin Campbell listed anywhere on this thread. He'd already vanished when it was first posted in 2011. Also, haven't seen or heard anything from Pauli Carman of Champaign (or from Champaign, for that matter).

    Irene Cara.

    I know, I recall once while researching her, about a decade or over ago, on her website read she founded a young group called "Hot Caramel" or so, but it is quite evidently plain as day that that was a side project that no one bought.

    Which my opinion, quite a shame, because from her rocking "Hot Lunch Jam", adorable "Anyone Can See", bombastic "The Dream", drifting high from "What A Feeling", to over the top "Girlfriends", she shoulda, my opinion, been a Whitney Houston-level star. But instead, to the majority public, two-time hit wonder, then completely disappeared after the mid-late eighties.

    Not even an occassional "I'm still around" new album, like Lionel Richie, O'Jays, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Isley Brothers, Temptations, and Chaka Khan does.

    I have this CD. Pretty good. Too bad this group didn't take off.
