My Time to Shine is, in essence, not merely a biography of Glenn Leonard (The Temptations), Joe Coleman (The Platters) and Joe Blunt (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. For baby boomersit is a treasure chest of memories of years past.
