Daryl Dragon, of 70s Music Duo ‘The Captain and Tenille,’ Dead at 76

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

According to CNN, Tennille, who was married to Dragon for nearly 40 years, was by his side in the last moments of his life as per his publicist, Harlan Boll.

Captain and Tennille were best known for their Grammy-winning 1974 hit song "Love Will Keep Us Together, as well as the hits "Muskrat Love" in 1976, and "Do That to Me One More Time" in 1980".

They also teamed up for a variety series, The Captain and Tennille Show on ABC, which drew 34 million viewers a week, according to Boll.

Dragon and Tennille married in 1975 and spent 39 years together before divorcing in 2014.

Tennille told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement, "He was a brilliant musician with many friends who loved him greatly. I was at my most creative in my life, when I was with him", Tenille wrote.

Speaking out following her ex-husband's death, Tennille described their close bond and praised her ex-hubby's incredible talent. He gave us "Love Will Keep Us Together": a great thing to remember when we think of him. Daryl himself was a classically-trained musician who was from Los Angeles.

Dragon and Tennille met in 1971 when she hired him to play piano for a musical called "Mother Earth".

Dragon once played keyboards for the Beach Boys, where he was first dubbed "The Captain" by singer Mike Love. (He would later serve as the Captain and Tennille's producer). She then joined the Beach Boys on tour and she and Dragon began a professional and personal relationship that spanned decades.

Tennille's spokesperson said "they remained in constant contact and were dear friends to the end".

According to his obituary notice, it was claimed at the late performer's request there would be no services, and asked for donations to organisations conducting research into neurological conditions.

Dragon is survived by his older brother, Doug Dragon, and two nieces, Kelly Arbout and Renee Henn.
