Grill died on Monday at a hospice outside Orlando, Florida, with his wife, Nancy, at his side, said his agent Howie Silverman of Paradise Artists.
Grill joined The Grass Roots in 1967, soon after it was created by songwriters Steve Barri and P.F. Sloan, and soon scored a hit with the song "Let's Live for Today."
The band's other hits with Grill as lead singer included "Midnight Confessions" and "Temptation Eyes."
The Grass Roots has cycled through many band members over the years, but Grill was a constant force in the group as both a musician and songwriter.
