Three Dog Night Interview on The Time Machine
Cory Wells of Three Dog Night was a musical guest on The Time Machine before he joined co-founder Danny Hutton on stage for a Maui performance earlier this month. The legendary group have recorded the music of the best (and mostly undiscovered) new songwriters of their time including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams and Hoyt Axton among many others. The group's eclectic taste, combined with their ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive and appealing style, resulted in the band dominating best-selling charts for years.
Three Dog Night is celebrating four decades in the music business and original band members Jimmy Greenspoon on keyboards, guitarist Michael Allsup, guitarist Danny Hutton and guitarist Cory Wells are joined by Paul Kingery (Rick Springfield's "Working Class Dog" tour, Tiffany and Ronnie Law) on bass and Pat Bautz (Mickey Gilley, Freddy Fender, Everett Harp, Rodney Dangerfield, Dave Mason and Little Richard) on drums to complete the lineup that has been delighting audiences around the world. In addition to the classic hits that made the group a powerhouse on the radio charts and record sales charts, Cory also shared with the radio audience the stories behind Three Dog Night's latest song releases of "Prayer Of The Children" and "Heart Of Blues" including the broadcast debut of "867-5309/Jenny" and "Two Lights In The Night Time".
