Three Dog Night Lead Singer Dies

His name may not be familiar, but the voice and the name of the group is.  Cory Wells was one of three members who sang lead for Three Dog Night, a band who recorded a multitude of memorable hits in the late 60s and 70s.  The band's songs still enjoy frequent airplay.  The members of band functioned as a unit that not many people who heard the music seemed to know the names of the members.  At least I didn't.  Wells was a native of Buffalo.  He sang lead on the novelty song "Mama Told Me Not To Come" about a man who went to an out of control party in spite of  his mother's warning.
