Cory Wells - Three Dog Night

We lost one of the premier singers of the rock era when Cory Wells died on October 21, 2015 at age 74. 

Wells, one of three lead singers in the band Three Dog Night, along with co-lead vocalists Chuck Negron, and Danny Hutton, recorded many hit songs in the 1960's and '70's, establishing the band as one of the most popular of the era.

Wells took the lead with his powerful, melodic voice, on such memorable songs as 'Never Been to Spain', 'Shambala', 'Sure As I'm Sittin' Here', 'Let Me Serenade You', 'Eli's Coming', and many others.

RIP Cory - thank-you for the exceptional music and the inspiration.
