THE TEMPTATIONS RETURN TO THE DIAMOND CENTER
The history of The Temptations is the history of contemporary American pop. An essential component of the original Motown machine, The Temptations began their musical life in Detroit in the early ‘60s. It wasn’t until 1964, however, that the Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do the Things You Do” turned them into stars. An avalanche of hits followed, including “My Girl,” “Since ILost My Baby,” and “I Wish It Would Rain.”
The Temptations were able to change with the times, hitting a more serious tone in the ‘70s with “Runaway Child” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone,” and releasing smash hits in the ‘80s such as “Treat Her Like a Lady.” More recently, The Temptations released Reflections in 2005, which earned a Grammy nomination, and in 2006 released Get Ready, one of the largest selling music DVDs ever. The current lineup includes Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, and Willie Greene Jr.
