FROM MARV GOLDBERG 2/17/03: The Striders, on record, according to Charles Strider, always consisted of Eugene Strider, Charles Strider, James Strider, and Ernest Griffin. There was a guy named Al Martin who was a fill-in singer for them on many occasions over the years, but he never recorded with them.
