Daryl Dragon 1942 – 2019

( : A&M Records)

Daryl Dragon, the man behind the keyboard stacks and producer of hit-making duo Captain & Tennille passed away on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Dragon, along with his former wife and partner Toni Tennille created a musical pop culture legacy that includes well-known hits “Love Will Keep Us Together,” “Muskrat Love” and “Do That to Me One More Time.”

Captain & Tennille made an unforgettable impact on me during my formative years, which has lasted well into my adulthood. I previously paid tribute to the Grammy Award-winning pop duo last summer in my piece titled The Pop Perfection of Captain & Tennille, which details my admiration for Daryl Dragon’s talented contributions as half of Captain & Tennille.
