Living Legends – Otis, Shelly at Ain’t Too Proud

 

Smiles after the first two previews of “Ain’t Too Proud.”

It’s great to have the legendary Otis Williams and longtime Temptations manager (since the 60’s) Shelly Berger watching a musical recreation of their life.

Otis is the man in the cool ass black and white jacket. Shelly is the older gentleman in the middle who is crouching down.

It’s great to hear their stories of the 60’s and 70’s. I asked Shelly about how they got the opportunity to work with Rick James in the early 80’s. I loved that song “Standing On The Top” by Rick.

He told me that Rick James idolized the Temps from when he was a kid and if there was any way he could have them sing on his record, it would be an honor.

You can hear Rick yell out “Temptations SING'” on a few songs on his classic releases from the early 80’s.

The Temps influenced so many people across all kinds of groups over the years. Their music stands the test of time.

This show hopefully will stand the test of time too. It’s sooooo good.
