Three Dog Night is an American rock band best known for their music from 1968 to 1975. This highly successful vocal-centric rock band formed in 1968 with a lineup consisting of Danny Hutton (Daniel Anthony Hutton, 10 September 1942, Buncrana, Eire), Cory Wells (b. 5 February 1942, Buffalo, New York, USA) and Chuck Negron (b. Charles Negron, 8 June 1942, Buffalo, New York, USA). The three lead singers were backed by Jimmy Greenspoon (b. 7 February 1948, Los Angeles, California, USA; organ), Joe Schermie (b. 12 February 1948, Madison, Wisconsin, USA, d. 26 March 2002; bass), Mike Allsup (b. 8 March 1947, Modesto, California, USA; guitar) and Floyd Sneed (b. 22 November 1943, Calgary, Alberta, CAN; drums). With their distinctive and sometimes extraordinary harmonic blend, the band registered an impressive 21 Billboard Top 40 hits (with three hitting number one) between 1969 and 1975. Their startling version of John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s ‘'It’s For You’' typified the band at their best, but it was their original arrangements of the work of lesser-known writers that brought welcome exposure and considerable royalties to fresh talent. As of 2012, they are still recording and making live appearances.
