Featuring the fetching three-part harmonies of lead singers Chuck Negron, Danny Hutton, and Cory Wells, Three Dog Night scored many hits during the late '60s and early '70s, providing a soundtrack to the heady era of Manson, Nixon, and the Vietnam War. The L.A. group released their self-titled debut in '68, which showed they had a gift for interpreting songs written by others. Their biggest hits were tunes by Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Laura Nyro, Hoyt Axton, and Paul Williams. They disbanded in '76, and reunited five years later. Negron was fired in '85, but the group has continued since.
