My Time to Shine is, in essence, not merely a biography of Glenn Leonard, Joe Coleman and Joe Blunt—read that the fabulous LCB— former lead singers of The Temptations, The Platters and The Drifters as a group, but as individuals with separate and interesting personalities. It is also about a musical genre that has stood the test of time, but has never, perhaps, been properly defined like rock 'n roll, blues, or rhythm and blues. This book harkens back to their earlier careers as lead singers in three Hall of Fame groups that ring memory bells for eons. It is for baby boomers, a treasure chest of memories of years past.
