EUSTIS, Fla. (AP) — An official in Florida says the lead singer of 1960s rock band The Grass Roots has died near Orlando.

Rob Grill sang on such hits as "Midnight Confessions," ''Temptation Eyes," and "Let's Live for Today." He was 67.

Medical examiner director Michael Hensley said Tuesday that Grill died Monday at a hospice facility in Lake County, Fla., a suburb of Orlando.

A woman who answered the phone at Cornerstone Hospice confirmed Grill was a patient but declined to offer further information, citing privacy concerns.
