Past members

From 1969 to 1972, due to a legal dispute with Motown, they did not write material under their own names, but instead used the collective pseudonym "Edythe Wayne". When the trio left Motown, they continued to work as a production team (with Eddie Holland being added to the producer credits), and as a songwriting team, until about 1974.

The trio was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1988[2] and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.[3]
