Ali-Ollie Woodson joined the group in 1984  replacing Dennis Edwards who had replaced original lead singer Davis Ruffin.  Cancer forced him to leave the group in 1996 and finally silenced him forever this past Sunday night.

Original Temp member Paul Williams committed suicide at age 34.  David Ruffin died of a drug overdose at age 50.  Eddie Kendricks died of cancer at age 52.  and Melvin Franklin died of heart failure at age 52
