04 JAN 2018: Popular recording artists The Captain and Tennille were a husband-and-wife duo - "Captain" Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille ...whose primary success occurred in the 1970s. Their first hit single was a cover of Neil Sedaka's "Love Will Keep Us Together” which went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart nine weeks after its debut. Those of you old enough may also recall it being a fave on the playlist at Ron Harding’s legendary parties.

Love Will Keep Us Together went on to win the Grammy Award for Record of the Year.

Daryl Dragon, now 76, died Wednesday. Though they divorced in 2014, after 39 years of marriage, 
Toni Tennille was at his bedside.
