Cissy I think - and isn't Dionne Warwick her auntie??

Randy and Bert Brown of The Newcomers

Pops Staples and the Clan - Mavis, Cleotha, Yvonne and Pervis

Not sure if George 'King' Scott and Charlie Scott of The Hesitations were brothers.

Fred and James Ferguson of Mad Dog and The Pups fame - whose lead singer was Oliver Cheatham of Get Down Saturday Night fame (apparently).

Moses and Joshua Dillard

Nobody's mentioned the Scott twins (Walter and Scotty) from the Whispers, yet. or Eddie Cornelius (Cornelius Brothers) and Prince Gideon of "Smooth Sailing" fame...

...Or try this one on for size:

The late Al Perkins was the brother of (the happily still very much with us) Vee Allen, who used to be married to (and is still friends with) Na Allen, whose sister is Denise La Salle. All true, I swear!

Eddie Holland's brother is called Brian, Lamont Dozier doesn't have a brother but his son Beau is playing hide the sausage with Joss Stone....

The Mayfield singers are Leroy Hutson and Donny Hathaway among others - none of whom are related to each other, much less to Curtis Mayfield!

I'll allow you Ahmet and his late brother Nesuhi, though, and I'll even spell them properly for you! :(

And Linda Womack didn't mind either of the brothers. Was married to Bobby then went off with Cecil. I suppose it saves changing your last name if you keep it in the family.

Also aren't the Jackson's brothers? :unsure:

Also aren't the Jackson's brothers? :)

Yes, that's right, he married Barbara Campbell Cooke less than 9 months after Sam was shot. Talk about your dead man's shoes. Thus Linda was both his stepdaughter and, once she married Cecil, his sister in law. And you thought it was only three toed hillbilles who got up to this sort of thing...

Off topic sorry !

Story went as far as I was told

Bobby was with Mother and Daughter. Then daughter fell for Cecil, there was a big fight ! They fell out and have not spoken sice ? So he was well into dead mans shoes ?

All very messy and odd !

This came from a freind who left the U.K as he got together with one of the backing singers, when they were over hear in the 80s. He ran off with her to L.A. That didn't work out I might add.

Andy Weeks rest in peace xx

How about The Five Stairsteps . . . Clarence Burke, Jnr. (lead), Aloha Burke (contralto), James Burke (first tenor), Kenneth Burke (second tenor), Dennis Burke (baritone), Cubie Burke (lead), Clarence Burke, Snr. (guitar).

NOW THAT IS KEEPING IT IN THE FAMILY!
