One Mama, No Papas

I just learned about this yesterday, but it happened Friday. Denny Doherty of the Mamas & Papas died at age 66. He was in Canada, where he lived.

They were truly a Sixties band, their vocal stylings are as ingrained on music from that decade as much as the Beach Boys. They didn't last into the Seventies, their music wasn't cutting edge anymore, and they had mucho personal problems in the band... not only substances but relationships... as he said, "The big woman was in love with me, but I was in love with the cute blonde, and she was married."

R.I.P. Papa Denny
