Daryl Dragon, a classically trained pianist who gained a share of fame as the “Captain” of Captain & Tennille, has died.
Dragon died early Wednesday at a hospice in Prescott, Ariz. Spokesman Harlan Boll said he was 76 and suffered from renal failure. His former wife and musical partner, Toni Tennille, was by his side, Boll said.
“He was a brilliant musician with many friends who loved him greatly,” Tennille said in a statement. “I was at my most creative in my life when I was with him.”
