The Temptations--Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, Otic Williams, Melvin Franklin, and David Ruffin--met the challenge by making themselves the best in the business. They perfected their vocal technique and used costume and dance to create a sexy, elegant stage presence.Their hard work paid off, but success had a price of its own. Drug abuse and arrogance destroyed friendships and force personnel changes. The Temptations also struggled to keep up with changing musical tastes. These setbacks proved to be temporary, however, in a triumphant career that has spanned more than 30 years.
