Legendary band Three Dog Night, now in its fifth decade, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. From 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.
Three Dog Night hits weave through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures — songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize Three Dog Night’s continuing popularity.
In 1965, Rob Grill and three others teamed up with mega-hit producer Steve Barri (The Mamas & The Papas, Tommy’s Roe, Four Tops, and Dusty Springfield) to form The Grass Roots. Since their formation The Grass Roots have gone on to chart 29 singles – 13 of which went gold followed by 2 gold albums and 1 platinum album. Hits include “Midnight Confessions” and “Temptation Eyes.”
