That's All for Everyone - Fleetwood Mac ♫ Tony-b Machine ♫ Relaxing rain audio for work, play and sleep Jimmy Ruffin, Motown singer, dies aged 78 20 November 2014Last updated at 01:08 ET Ruffin, pictured in 1998, was approached to join the Temptations before his brother Jimmy Ruffin, the Motown performer who scored his biggest hit with 1966's What Becomes of the Broken Hearted, has died at the age of 78. News of his death follows reports last month that he was seriously ill and in intensive care at a Las Vegas hospital. Born in Mississippi, Ruffin moved to Detroit in the early 1960s and was signed to Motown's Miracle label. He moved to the UK in the 1980s, where he recorded songs with Paul Weller and Heaven 17. Ruffin's other hits included I've Passed This Way Before, Gonna Give Her All the Love I Got and Hold On To My Love, a top 10 hit in 1980. His younger brother David, one of the early members of the Temptations, died in 1991 of a drug overdose, prompting his sibling to become an anti-drug campaigner. A family statement said that Ruffin was "a rare type of man who left his mark on the music industry".
