Vocalist
    (April 24, 1945-November 5, 2017)
    Born in Franklin, Tennessee
    Birth name was Robert Peebles
    Recorded the single ‘Everlasting Love’ (1967)
    He changed his name because disc jockeys kept pronouncing his original name ‘Pebbles.’
    He was a member of a doo-wop quintet, the Paramounts that recorded a single for Dot Records; when the group broke up and tried to get out of their contract (1961), the ensuing legal mess left him unable to record for four and half years.
    He was a one-hit wonder in the US.
    His one hit, ‘Everlasting Love,’ was overshadowed by Carl Carlton’s 1974 remake.
    He was popular on the Carolina beach music scene and the British Northern Soul circuit.
    ’Everlasting Love’ and another of his 60s records, ‘Love on a Mountain Top,’ became top 20 hits in the UK when they were reissued in 1973-74.
    He earned a degree in chemistry from Tennessee State University and became a lab technician and chemistry teacher after the hits dried up.
