   BEACH BOY DARYL DRAGON UNSURE WHY TONI TENNILLE HAS FILED FOR DIVORCE



Goodbye Captain & Tennille

    In January of 1998 I received the first e mail informing me that a friend had passed away.  Nik Venet produced the Beach Boys, Jim Croce, Linda Ronstadt, Harriet Schock (author of "Ain't No Way To Treat A Lady" for Helen Reddy) and many, many others.    Read about Nik here: http://www.allmusic.com/album/more-than-you-know-mw0000196059

   About six months ago I began corresponding with Nik's wife, who appeared on the Monkees TV show, on TV's Batman, filming for movies like Easy Rider, Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte and Myra Breckinridge (I promptly recited the entire first chapter of the Gore Vidal novel to her last night on the phone...which I know by heart...including part of Chapter 2...) we discussed doing a remake! HA!)... the key element here for this story, of course, is the Beach Boys which today feature Daryl Dragon of The Captain and Tennille.

   Captain & Tennille wrote me back in the 1990s thanking me for my critiques of their albums.  Today it is sad to hear that the two musicians - now in their seventies - are going their separate ways.  Here are some of my reviews of the albums the duo created:
