I was sad (and surprised) to hear that she divorced him 3 years ago, after 39 years of marriage, and he said that he did not know why. She later said on a talk show that he was not "intimate" with her. Very sad.
Originally posted by catskilleagle: The Captain and Tennille were a big deal in the 70's with a few hits and their own TV show. She's the talented and leggy singer and he's the keyboard player with a captain's hat who never spoke on stage. It was an almost-vaudeville gimmick that worked for them. I remember when some people objected to their song, "Muskrat Love," saying the lyrics were too explicit - quite mild to most back then and hardly noticeable today.
I was sorry to read of another 70's performer's passing.
