Again Annette, I just read your answers about Melvin's death in accordance or with reference to the temptations book.Im getting confused because from the Temptations History DVD, Melvin died while they were having lunch with Mama Rose and Ottis Williams. It was just unfortunate that Melvin by the time of his death, he was going to take Lemonate somewhere in the house leaving both Ottis and Mama in the dining room. Melvin was trying to show how strong he was to Both Ottis and Mama. He took long and Ottis went by to chech on him, that was behind the scene according to the DVD and there he found Melvin Dead. There was no indication whatsoever about the presence of someone else in the house except for Melvin, Ottis and Mama Rose.

          Hi Annette I think I should get the Temptations book and read it. Have a great day.

            Hi Aubrey. I think you just ought to do that. You ought to be ashamed of yourself that you haven't already (Smile). Kidding Aubrey, but the book is wonderful for a reference tool in Tempt-ology. Get... more

            The book is a must. Now bear in mind, this is just Otis's recollection of events, but I think it is fairly accurate. I know there was opposition from a few past members, but no one else to this point ... more
