Dennis Edwards, Former Lead Singer of The Temptations, Dead at 74

Dennis Edwards joined the Temptations in 1968 and performed with the group off and on until 1989, voicing classics like "Cloud Nine" and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone".

In more recent years, Edwards toured with a "Temptations" splinter group called The Temptations Review featuring Dennis Edwards.

The musician, who enjoyed three stints with the group, was in Chicago at the time of his death. Edwards would've celebrated his 75th birthday on Saturday, February 3.

The Recording Academy has just released a statement noting "As lead vocalist of the Temptations, three-time GRAMMY® victor Dennis Edwards helped define Detroit soul in the late 1960s as the music of Motown acts was becoming more socially aware".

Edwards was sacked from the group in 1977, and in that same year he married Ruth Pointer of The Pointer Sisters. In 1984, after some personal problems, Edwards was again fired and he finally found solo success with the single "Don't Look Any Further" (1984 / #72 Pop / #2 R&B).

Outside of his work with the Temptations, Dennis also had a solo career. The couple later welcomed a daughter, Issa Pointer, in 1978 before they divorced.
