    Eugene Maye from Los Angeles was a member of his brother's group, Arthur Lee Maye and The Crowns. He also was a member of Richard Berry and the Pharaohs, he worked with the Sharmettes about 6 or 7 months, teaching them songs, and polishing up their harmony. In 1962 The Crowns and the Pharaohs got together and formed a group called the Terrans.
