Richard Street – My Life As A Temptation
In the book, Richard Street – My Life As a Temptation is a TRUE story (the ORIGINAL STORY TOLD BY RICHARD STREET OVER 20 YEARS AGO) by Richard Street. Richard was a former member of the world-renowned singing sensations and Motown recording artist, The Temptations. This book details personal information deemed as SECRETS within the group and the music industry.
After 23 years of being a part of The Temptations, Richard thought he had it all. However, little did he know, his entire world would come to a crashing end filled with heartaches and disappointments, leaving him feeling disrespected, stupid, and confused.
Richard describes how his first love, known to him and neighborhood friends as Diane, broke his heart after their breakup. Years later Diane became known to the world as Diana Ross. Richard details how he was a part of the group who auditioned for the founder of Motown, Barry Gordy, in the bathroom of the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan, yet was not considered as an original member of The Temptations when Motown Records signed the group as recording artists.
This powerful book reveals MANY behind the scenes secrets of how the group wasn't able to make business decisions; how management and accountants made more money than group members; how he and founding member, bass signer Melvin Williams, became best friend and family; how abuse affected Melvin’s family; how Melvin received liquid gold injections into his body, along with steroids and other painkillers in order to perform and never stood up for what he thought was right or wrong with the group; and how Otis Williams, (Founder of the Temptations) was never close to anyone in the group and considered as being jealous and backbiting.
Richard also discusses how he felt like a clueless and stupid businessman because he never knew how much money he made or where several dollars of his earned income went, but was unable to question the monies whereabouts with staff members, lawyers, or accounts.
This dynamic story will leave you amazed, yet stunned at how realistic the statement, 'Everything that Glitters, isn't always Golden'. Richard Street digs deep within his soul as he describes the life he had as a member of the legendary Temptations.
