On This Day, December 2

 

 

On December 2, 1972, the Temptations earn the last of their four chart-topping hits when “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone” reaches #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Over the course of their storied career, the Temptations placed 38 hit records in the pop top 40—not just more than any other Motown Records artist, but more than any American pop group ever. The Temptations were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989. Find the temptations on hoopla and Freegal.
