I was sad to hear of the passing of Cory Wells of 3 Dog Night on Tuesday. I have been a fan of the band since I 1st heard “Eli’s Coming”. One of my memories of that time involved that song when my older sister and her friend dared me to put on a long wig and go into a Memphis record store and act like I was a young “HIPPE”. Well I did, and they paid up by buying me the 45 of “Eli’s coming”.
The 1st LP I purchased with my own money was the 3 dog night album “GOLDEN BISCUTS”.
I even got to see the band perform in concert 3 times,in Baton Rouge LA, Montgomery City Mo, and here in Logan at the Cache Valley Cruise in back in 2009. I even got to introduce them on stage at the Montgomery City and Logan concert.
Here are some pictures of the Logan show from 2009
I even interviewed Cory Wells on the phone and got some great stories about the early days and “JOY TO THE WORLD” you can listen to the interview here.
I will always love 3 Dog night and what an honor it was to be able to meet Cory Wells! As I close this blog, I do so with one of my favorite songs by the band. Not one of their biggest hits but one that touched me the 1st time I heard it. It is “Til The World Ends”
Thanks Cory Wells for all the great music
