Joe Herndon

Walter Joseph Herndon (born January 5, 1949) is an American R&B and soul singer, former bass singer of a version of doo-wop group The Spaniels and the current bass singer for The Temptations.[1]


Herndon was born in Washington, D.C. and began his career joining the D.C.-based version of The Spaniels in the 1970s. He would remain singing with this version of the group until the late-1990s when he joined forces with former Temptations singer Glenn Leonard to form the splinter group The Temptations Experience. Upon the dismissal of Temptations bass singer Harry McGilberry in late 2003, Herndon was asked to replace McGilberry as a featured member of the legendary Motown quintet by Otis Williams. Herndon accepted and made his official Temptations debut on their last Motown album, 2004's Legacy.

He is still a current member of the group alongside Otis Williams, Bruce Williamson, Ron Tyson and Terry Weeks.
