BALTIMORE (AP) — Otis “Damon” Harris, a former member of the Motown group The Temptations, has died of prostate cancer. He was 62.
Chuck Woodson, a cousin serving as family spokesman, confirmed that Harris died at a Baltimore hospice last week.
Harris performed with the celebrated Motown act The Temptations from 1971 to 1975 and sang on hits including “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone” and “Superstar (Remember How You Got Where You Are).”
Woodson said joining The Temptations was “the realization of a dream” for Harris.
Harris formed a new group after leaving The Temptations and later released solo recordings.
