Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I don't really know what a superstar is. I don't think you could ever become a superstar - they call you what they want to call you - but I don't think you could ever become a superstar because that means you have made it. You have achieved it all. I don't think I want to get that big. I don't want to blow myself out of proportion. That's too heavy a cross to bear.

Trivia:

Was close, longtime friends with his fellow The Temptations singer Paul Williams. They grew up together and were in a band called the Primes before joining Otis Williams and Melvin Franklin to create The Temptations. See more »
