Three Dog Night

Three Dog Night scored a succession of 21 hit singles, including eleven Top Tens, and twelve consecutive gold albums from 1969 to 1975, thanks to the slick, sometimes soulful vocal harmonies of singers Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells and an excellent ear for quality material. While often criticized as commercial, the band was noted for its creative arrangements and interpretations, and their cover choices gave exposure (and royalties) to several talented songwriters: Nilsson ("One"), Laura Nyro ("Eli's Coming"), Randy Newman ("Mama Told Me (Not to Come)"), Hoyt Axton ("Joy to the World"), Argent's Russ Ballard ("Liar"), and Leo Sayer ("The Show Must Go On"). Wells and Hutton met in the '60s while the former was the lead singer of the Enemies and the latter, a writer/producer for Hanna Barbera Records who had recorded several singles, served as producer. In 1967, Hutton conceived the idea of a three-vocalist group, and he and Wells enlisted mutual friend Negron. They took their name from an Australian expression describing low nocturnal temperatures in the outback (the colder the night, the more dogs needed to keep warm while sleeping). The three cut a few unsuccessful singles and decided to expand their range by hiring backing musicians, who included guitarist Mike Allsup, keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon, bassist Joe Schermie, and drummer Floyd Sneed. "One" became the band's first Top Ten hit in 1969, while "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" hit number one a year later. "Joy to the World" became the group's biggest hit in 1971, spending six weeks on top of the pop charts, and their streak continued with their final number one, 1972's "Black and White" (a U.K. reggae hit for Greyhound), and their final Top Ten, 1974's "The Show Must Go On." By 1976, internal dissent arose in the group and Three Dog Night officially disbanded a year later. There was a reunion in the early '80s, and Hutton and Wells have since taken Three Dog Night out on the international touring circuit. In 2002 With The London Symphony was released and then, in 2004, to celebrate their 35th anniversary, the band issued The 35th Anniversary Hits Collection which featured a pair of new tracks, "Sault Ste. Marie" and "Overground." 2009 saw two more new singles in "Heart of Blues" and "Prayer of the Children" hinting at the possibility of another studio album in their future. Three Dog Night continued to tour over the next few years, though Wells eventually left the group in September 2015 due to medical complications. Just one month later he succombed to myeloma, a form of blood cancer. ~ Steve Huey

I saw them perform live when I was a teenager in NY. They brought down the house with Eli"s Coming!! They were such a soulful group! Such memories!

They earned Hoyt Axton a great deal of royalties with Joy to the World and Never Been to Spain. They were huge in the early 70's. On every jukebox across the nation

I don't think Three Dog Night was ever under rated by anyone. Their vocal harmonizatio n was as good as you'll hear and each one could sing individually if needed. So talented during such a turbulent time in my young life!

Jimmy and Corey have passed recently. Please research facts and update. Both are surely missed but the band continues on with a new singer added (but not replacing Corey...nobo d y could do that!!) They will always have a very special place in my heart from many many many years ago and will stay there permanently til I die!!

It never ceases to amaze me when successful group members can't see what they have and it's there in front of their faces. For this band to break up over petty personal issues was just tragic. They were so great collectively and fed off of one another's strengths to make music that will live forever. But what happened individually when they split? Oh yeah, nothing and that's my point!

Loved Three Dog Night. One of the best with three amazingly talented singers and a crack backing group. I just found out that Cory Wells has passed away. R.I.P Cory.
