The Temptations

Eddie Kendricks: Dead. Melvin Franklin: Dead. Paul Williams: Dead. David Ruffin: Dead. Al Bryant: Dead. Otis Williams: Hey, he's still alive! So, as an original member of Motown soul legends the Temptations, Williams gets to keep using the group's name while touring the globe with four other dudes you've probably never heard of, performing all those old classics you know and love. Is it a sham, like if Marky Ramone drafted three pals with leather jackets and toured as the Ramones? Maybe. But if you can accept that it's basically just glorified karaoke, you'll probably have a decent enough time singing along to the tunes and watching the synchronized dance moves.
