Cory Wells, Three Dog Night Singer, Dies 74

Cory Wells (born Emil Lewandowski; February 2, 1941 – October 20, 2015) was an American singer, best known as one of the three lead vocalists in the band Three Dog Night.

Cory Wells and Danny Hutton got together to form Three Dog Night in 1968.

Unlike many other rock musicians of the day, Wells was able to abstain from serious drug and alcohol problems, plus he didn't squander his earnings on the lavish life styles of many successful rock stars. Rather, he chose to live a somewhat more moderate existence.

Wells died suddenly in his sleep on October 20, 2015 at his home in Dunkirk, New York at the age of 74.  Cause of death is not known.
