Music Note of Note: We mourn the loss of Temptations members Dennis Edwards this month, who died on February 1st. He was born in Alabama and moved to Detroit, where there he hooked up with the band and sang many of their big hits of the late 1960s and 1970s including “Cloud Nine” and “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.” Since the 1980s, he called St. Louis is home. He will be missed.
