RIP Denny Doherty (The Mamas and the Papas)

Denny Doherty of the Mamas and the Papas has passed away at 66 after "a short illness", leaving Michelle Phillips as the only living Mama or Papa.

I only recently became acquainted with the backstory of the short-lived group via the liner notes to last year's great John Phillips reissue John the Wolfking of LA, and have added Phillips' out-of-print autobiography Papa John to the mental list of books I keep in my head to look for in used book shops. Doherty appears in Wolfking as the "drunken gigolo" in "April Anne".

This AMC cover was an unlisted track on San Francisco.

I have written a blog entry, "Dedicated to... Dennis Doherty", at
http://roseteaparty1959.spaces.live.com
to honour of this fine Canadian musician and performer.
It features YouTube.com links to videos of three of the Mama and the Papa's most memorable songs.

Say a little prayer for him.
