All 3 Womack brothers were in the early line-up of the Valentinos and after Bobby went solo, the other brothers kept the group going (though I'm unsure which of them sang lead on "Sweeter Than The Day Before".
Cecil was married to Mary Wells & they had children together (who live in the US).
....... Another singer has left us...
