[crying] That sucks! I remember first meeting the Temptations. I was working as an in house tech/stagehand. I helped setup their audio with their road crew. My friend fell from the boom lift doing focus on the electrics. I cut my hand on the keyboard pretty good. The whole band remembered all of our names. Had us line up and personal thanked us for making them look good. Never in 7 years of working entertainment did I have a band as classy, respectful, polite, and puts on an amazing show as the Temptations. He may have passed, but his legend will live on in history.
