Three Dog Night

The three-headed beast of Danny Hutton, Corey Wells and Chuck Negron made up the wildly successful group Three Dog Night. Known as much for their own songs as for popularizing other works ("Joy To The World," "Mama Told Me Not To Come"), from 1968 - 1976, it was hard to find a more popular band. How well do you remember the group?
