David Ruffin


The raspy and anguished lead voice on mega-hits “My Girl, Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” and “I Know (I’m Losing You),” David Ruffin was the center of The Temptations in their peak years. But his expanding ego forced his bandmates to cut ties with him in 1968. Drug abuse wore him down in the ’70s and ’80s, costing him precious opportunities to reunite with friends and former bandmates. Less than two years after joining The Temptations onstage for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he was found dead from an apparent drug overdose at the age 50. His family, friends and musical associates came together to help Unsung portray the tumultuous life and career of the legendary singer.
