The Temptations have been going at it for quite a long time. They formed in 1960 in Detroit, Michigan. We do not have to rehash the story, as you probably already know it well. One fact that is interesting is that the group has had 24 different members over the years.
Currently, Otis Williams is the only original member that is still in the group. Ron Tyson, the other Temptation with many years under his belt, joined the group in 1983. Coincidentally, his first performance with the group was on the Motown 25 TV special. Due to special circumstances, Tyson never rehearsed with the group before his first performance.
The entire show was an awesome spectacle, one that will never happen again.
You can, however, see The Temptations live and on stage. They will hit several cities through the end of the year, and also into 2018.
