The Knight Brothers were a soul music duo, comprising Richard Dunbar (b 31 May 1939) and Jimmy Diggs (b James Leon Diggs, 11 October 1938). Both had been singing in local church choirs, when they met while living in Washington D.C. in the early 1950s. The pair then formed a doo-wop group, the Starfires, who recorded for the Decca label in 1958. Forming a duo, they began recording for the Checker label in 1963. Their biggest success was Temptation 'Bout To Get Me, which was a number 12 R & B and number 70 pop hit in 1965, and was followed by I'm Never Gonna Live It Down.
