Daryl Dragon, of pop duo Captain and Tennille, dies at 76

Daryl Dragon (1942 - 2019) was one half of the 1970s soft rock superstar duo Captain and Tennille.

Dragon died of renal failure early Wednesday at a hospice in Prescott, Ariz., according to his publicist Harlan Boll.

The duo went on to top the 1970s music charts with hits including "Muskrat Love", "Shop Around" and "Love Will Keep Us Together". Reaching the height of their popularity in the 1970s and early 1980s, the couple married and had five albums certified gold or platinum, scoring numerous hits on the U.S. singles charts and hosted their own television variety series on ABC in 1976-77, according to Wikipedia.

Dragon married Toni Tennille in 1975 and were together until 2014.

Dragon was "a great musician, keyboard player and friend for over 40 years", Sedaka wrote on Twitter. In September 2010, Tennille publicly clarified her husband's condition as "a neurological condition (later confirmed to be Essential tremor), which caused him to have tremors, according to a Wikipedia entry".

Dragon met his future wife, Toni Tennille, in 1971 when she hired the classically trained pianist for a musical she'd been working on called "Mother Earth". Those, too, don't sound like Captain & Tennille's music.

Wilson said Dragon, who has died in the United States aged 76, was "a great guy and a hell of a musician and keyboard player".

The duo followed up their 1975 success with a few appearances on variety shows, covers, and original songs with Tennille's "Do That To Me One More Time" also climbing to the number 1 spot. They soon began playing gigs together in the Los Angeles area, quickly leading to a record deal. "I feel very bad about this". The couple, which had been living together, made it official in November of that year.
