Sid was in The Serenaders with George Kerr at Motown and also staff writers at Motown's New York office.
Sid then went to become a staff writer at Sue Records with JJ Jackson before teaming up with Clinton at Golden World. It was Andre Williams who took Barnes to Chess and Rotary. Sid doesn't appear on Hey Love LP.
