    DETROIT – Ali-Ollie Woodson, who led the legendary Motown quintet The Temptations in the 1980s and '90s and helped restore them to their hit-making glory with songs including "Treat Her Like A Lady," has died, a friend said. He was 58.


    Woodson died Sunday in southern California after battling cancer, Motown Alumni Association President Billy Wilson said. Wilson said Woodson's wife, Juanita, told him about the death Sunday.


    Woodson was not an original member of the group, which had several lineup changes since it started in the 1960s. But he played an integral part in keeping the Temptations from becoming just nostalgia act.

    I'm sorry to hear of Mr. Woodson's death. I pray for his family. This must be the third person in something like four days (Gary Coleman and Denis Hopper).

    Bless him.

    I'm a huge Temptations fan and appreciate any and all efforts to keep alive the original group's name after all these years.
