Radio Facts: Former Temptation’s lead singer, Dennis Edwards, has died from complications of Meningitis. Ironically his 75th birthday is tomorrow.
Edwards’ undeniable singing talent made him a shoe-in when he replaced original lead singer, who was a friend of his, in the Temptations in 1968, David Ruffin.
