Re: What happened to the Black Band in music.
All cyclical. Pop music is single vocalist centric right now, as it was in the 80's. There were tons of black bands in the 90's, 60's, early 70's and there will continue to be plenty more. Outside of the Temptaions, my favorites would be:
Boys To Men
H-Town (this ones going out to all the ladies)
112 I always thought were funny
KC and Jo-Jo/Jodeci
Thin Lizzy/Living Color for rock
