of the most successful duos in pop history,
Daryl Dragon and Toni
Tennille the Captain & Tennille
- One of the most successful duos in pop history,
Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille the Captain
& Tennille - had earned an impressive
five gold albums, six gold singles, two platinum
albums and one platinum single. Along the
way, the Grammy winning, ex-husband and ex-wife
duo created a very distinctive brand of pop
music. A style that combined the dynamic vocal
styling of Toni Tennille with the unique musical
arrangements and versatile keyboard musicianship
of Daryl Dragon. Together, they'd landed on
the pop singles chart 14 times, half of them
in the Top 10.
Until Thursday, January 16th, 2014, when Toni
Tennile met with a DIVORCE ATTORNEY,
in Phoenix, AZ,
everything relating to THE CAPTAIN
& TENNILLE appeared to the public as them
being the ideal model for a "rock-solid'
married pair. But almost all people naturally
evolve over time, & sometimes hidden feelings
start to be uncovered when one may read, just
a little more into (the popularized, substitute
heading appearing just below), stating, for
instance: `'MUSIC HAS KEPT THEM TOGETHER"
At any rate, this musical-twosome remain one
of the top five duos of the past few decades.
Toni and Daryl released their first album
in 1974 and rocketed to stardom shortly thereafter,
taking top honors at the 1975 Grammy Awards
by winning Record of the Year for "Love
Will Keep Us Together."
