Did you hear that Richard Street from the Temptations just passed away? This happened just after the death 10 days earlier of another one of his bandmates, Damon Harris. My son and I were discussing movies that we had seen and one that we both enjoyed was the TV movie, "The Temptations" which was based on a book written by one of the band's members, Otis Williams. What a wonderful story behind this group! What an incredibly bunch of talented men! My son got me the DVD of the movie "The Temptations" as a present this past Christmas. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend it. Of course, it tells you the whole story of Motown with Berry Gordy and Smoky Robinson and all of the Motown names that I hope that you all know and love.
The video that I found for you is from a concert in Stockholm and it is not the best quality but just listen to the sound of Richard Street's voice! My stars, what an incredible singing voice that he had, those high notes just blow me away! I love that song "My Girl"...just those opening notes, you can tell that you are in for a treat, don't you? I know that often folks don't bother to click on the Youtube videos, but I promise you that if you listen to this one, you will enjoy it! And remember, if you can, make sure you watch that movie, I think it was really a mini-series on TV and the DVD said that it won an Emmy. Good, it deserved one.
Rest in peace- Richard Street, Damon Harris, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, David Ruffin, Melvin Franklin and Eddie Kendricks. The joy of your music will last forever.
We just had a cold weekend in Georgia, the coldest this winter. Saturday was cloudy and cold but today (Sunday) was sunny.
"I've got sunshine on a cloudy day,
when it's cold outside, I've got the month of May".
Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Take care.
