Biography

Los Angeles, United States (1968 – present)

Three Dog Night is an American band from Los Angeles, California best known for their music from 1968 to 1975, during which time they achieved twenty-one consecutive Billboard Top 40 Hits and 12 consecutive Gold Albums. Three Dog Night are still active in 2012, touring and recording 43 years after their first album was released. The first of the band’s 7 million-selling singles was One in 1969. They scored three number one singles: Mama Told Me (Not To Come), Joy to the World and Black And White.

The original lineup included three lead vocalists — Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells — along with Michael Allsup on guitar, Jimmy Greenspoon on keyboards Floyd Sneed on drums and Joe Schermie (from the Cory Wells Blues Band) on bass.

Three Dog Night recorded some tracks with Beach Boys producer, composer, vocalist, and instrumentalist Brian Wilson before signing with Dunhill Records and at the time went under the name Redwood. The band changed their name based on an article describing how Australian Aborigines slept with their dogs for warmth on cold nights, the coldest being a “three-dog night.”

    This is off-topic, I know, but in regards to Chicago, the last album I bought was the last one that Terry Kath played on (Chicago 8?). After they lost Terry, it just wasn't Chicago to me.

    Pop-rock or not, Three Dog Night was a great band -- no, a phenomenal band. I just finished converting my TDN vinyl to digital. I'll be scrobbling all of it, soon. Man, these songs bring back the memories.

    Absolutely on everybody's favorite pop groups list. They made the times and enriched my life with so many great songs. Their music always comes to mind and sounds as good today as ever. I really do miss Chuck's vocals and his presence in the group. No one could replace him or his voice and neither Cory or Danny could sing like him. As much as I love the group, I can't see them live without Chuck. It's like Chicago without Peter Cetera, some members are irreplaceable.

    one of my very favorite bands. just saw them in concert; even in 2012 they are a better live band than in studio, and considering how much i love their albums that's saying a lot. for 70 year old guys they sound exactly like they did at square one. and the stage presence! cory wells walked past my seat before the show started and smiled at me... goofy guy, just wish i had recognized him in time. these dogs ARE GODS

    @ Druid66: yea, and not just tuneful & somber.....but politically charged too even if a lot of it was kind of tongue in cheek.

    These guys get dismissed a lot for being "pop-rock" - but give them another listen, to appreciate how tuneful and somber they really were.
