    After graduating from Yale in 1955 with a BA in drama, Glines spent seven years as a writer for Captain Kangaroo and four years as a writer for Sesame Street -- an inauspicious start to a prolific playwriting career that would net him a Tony award for Torch Song Trilogy.

    From 1959 until 1972 when Motown moved from Detroit to Los Angeles, various combinations of the 15 studio musicians known as the Funk Brothers played, without credit, on every Motown/Tamla/Gordy recording. Their pay: $10 an hour.

    Eddie Willis, one of the last Funk Brothers, dies at 82
    Detroit Free Press, Aug 20 2018 3:28 PM

    Guitarist Eddie Willis, who played on many of the best-known Motown hits from the Detroit era, died this morning at his home in Gore Springs, Mississippi. He was 82 and had been suffering complications from a childhood bout with polio. With the death of Willis, only guitarist Joe Messina remains from the seminal core lineup of the Funk Brothers, the revered Motown house band that largely worked in obscurity. The group's legacy was brought to wider prominence with the 2002 award-winning documentary Standing In The Shadows Of Motown.
