    Cory Wells, one of three principal of the '60s-formed band Three Dog Night, died on Oct. 20, according to a statement released by the band.

    "It is with deep sadness and disbelief that I must report the passing of Cory Wells, my beloved band mate for over 45 years," said Danny Hutton, among the group's other key vocalists, along with Chuck Negron. "Cory was an incredible singer -- a great performer, he could sing anything," Hutton added.

    Though the cause of death wasn't specified, the statement said that Wells had died "unexpectedly," and noted that he had been performing with the band through September, when he "developed a problem with severe back pain."

    He blew it out of the park here...


    Is it just me or does the drummer look like a splitting twin to Wiggy?

    It is a shame that he did not die doing what he loved, doing massive amounts of blow and hookers

    One is the loneliest number.

    Weird band. Quite a few hits. I went to grade school with the lead singer's cousin. It was a big deal. I liked them.
