Classic Rock Q107 Remembers ‘Temptations’ Great, Otis Damon Harris [VIDEO]

Before Eddie Kendricks kept on truckin’, he was a member of one of the greatest musical groups in history!

In 1971, when Kendricks decided it was time to embark on a solo career, that opened the door for the soul and R&B of Otis “Damon” Harris to slide his voice into the band known as “The Temptations”, and since they already had one guy in the band named Otis (Otis Williams), Otis Harris changed his first name to “Damon”.

Harris loved the Temptations growing up.  He, and some other friends in high school, formed “The Young Tempts”.  Kind of a tribute band of sorts.

His voice is well defined on platinum recordings of “Superstar (Remember How You Got Where You Are)”, “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone”, and “take a Look Around”

Three Grammy awards with the Temptations, and a solo release in ’78, was enough for Harris, who retired left the music scene for good, in order to pursue his educational ambitions.

Otis “Damon” Harris fought prostate cancer for 14 years, before losing his battle one week ago, at only 62 years old.
