Otis "Damon" Harris, 62, a former member of the Temptations, has died of prostate cancer. Chuck Woodson, a cousin serving as family spokesman, confirmed that Mr. Harris died at a Baltimore hospice last week.

Mr. Harris performed with the Motown act from 1971 to 1975 and sang on hits including "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" and "Superstar (Remember How You Got Where You Are)."

Woodson said joining the Temptations was "the realization of a dream" for Mr. Harris, who formed his own group after leaving and later released solo recordings.

Woodson said Mr. Harris later established a cancer foundation that was in its early stages when he became ill. - AP
