I'm the glue that holds everything together.
I've learned over the years that people are human and have mood swings, regardless of how talented they are. Today, I'm looking at life from a realistic point of view instead of the way I would want things to be.

Otis Williams
The Temptations still stand today, not in spite of those who left us, but because of them.
