The Temptations singer Dennis Edwards has died aged 74

The Temptations singer Dennis Edwards has died aged 74

Born in Fairfield, Ala. and a Detroit native, Edwards died a day before his 75th birthday.

Edwards' wife of 18 years, Brenda Edwards, confirmed that he died in a Chicago hospital after being in and out of hospitals since he was diagnosed with meningitis in May 2017, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Dennis sang on several of the group's most famous hit songs, including "I Can't Get Next to You", "Ball of Confusion" and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone". In 1989 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Temptations.

Edwards began his career as lead singer of another Motown group, The Contours, before being called into replace Ruffin after the singer's fallout with the group.

Edwards also released three solo albums and scored a hit in 1984 for his duet with Siedah Garrett, "Don't Look Any Further", which made it to #72 on the pop chart and #2 on the R&B chart.

Since the 1990s, Edwards had toured with his own version of The Temptations called The Temptations Review Featuring Dennis Edwards.

The Temptations was one of the leading male vocal groups of the 1960s and early 1970s, and helped define the signature Motown sound.

His top hits include Papa Was a Rollin' Stone and Just My Imagination. Dennis was sacked from the group in 1977, and that same year he married Ruth Pointer of The Pointer Sisters.
