Originally formed in their native Louisville Kentucky as the
Crazy Sounds, the group moved to Cleveland, where legendary disc jockey
Alan Freed renamed them the Moonglows. The group consisted of Bobby "Lester"
Dallas, Harvey Fuqua, Alexander "Pete" Graves, and Prentiss
Barnes, with Billy Johnson on guitar. In 1958, shortly after the
Moonglows recorded their final hit, "10 Commandments of Love",
Fuqua re-asserted himself as the group's lead singer, putting Lester
further in the background causing friction among group members. In 1960,
Fuqua moved to Detroit, Michigan, disbanded the Moonglows. The revived
1972 Moonglows are made up of Harvey Fuqua, Bobby Lester, Pete Graves,
Doc Williams and Chuck Lewis.
