The Motowns

Profile:
The Motowns were a British beat music group (1966-1970) during the second half of the sixties known in Italy as part of the so-called British invasion.
The group was founded in Liverpool by guitarist Douglas Albert Meakin (born March 17, 1945 ), a school friends of Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr, who in the early sixties played in specialized youth ensembles in Merseysound .

The members of the group were:

Douglas "Dougie" Meakin on guitar and vocals
Harold "Lally" Stott, lead vocal and solo guitar
Tony Crowley on the drums
Mike "Saint" Logan at the piano
Robbie "Little" Scott on the electric bass

Arrived in Florence just in the days of a 1966 flood , in which they lost most of their instruments and their amplification system.
Disbanded when in 1970,lead singer Lally Stott chose to pursue a solo career, but was killed in a traffic accident in 1977 while riding a small commuter bike close to his home town of Prescot. The other members became session musicians with their own storied backgrounds.

Were signed to RCA Italiana, Durium, Carosello, and Cinevox.
