RIP & Happy Birthday to Dennis Edwards

I’m an old head at heart and The Temptations is one  of my favorite oldies groups: so when I heard that Dennis Edwards passed away on Friday, it was kinda sad. He would’ve been 75 years old today.

If you aren’t familiar with Dennis, he was a lead singer in The Temptations, who replaced David Ruffin in the late 1960s.  He was the lead singer on “Papa was a Rolling Stone“ and  also sang on other songs such as “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” “Just My Imagination” “I wish it Would Rain” “I Can’t Get Next To You” and  plenty more. You may remember his song “Don’t Look Any Further” :

Not to mention, he stayed in St. Louis after his fame. He even was staying in North County (Stl lango). Dennis did an interview back 2011, talking about moving back to St.Louis:

He will definitely be remembered for his powerful voice and hit songs.

RIP Dennis!
