Profile Bio Text
Daryl Frank Dragon (born August 27, 1942) is a keyboardist, known as The Captain in the successful 1970s pop musical duo Captain & Tennille, with his wife, Toni Tennille.
Dragon was born into a musical family, and is the son of conductor, composer, and arranger, Carmen Dragon, and the elder brother of Dennis Dragon, a member of the 1960s pop combo The Dragons (which included Doug Dragon) and the 1980s surf band, the Surf Punks. His godfather was actor and comedian Danny Thomas.
Dragon's familiar image and stage name came from his time as a keyboard player with The Beach Boys in the early 1970s. Beach Boys lead singer Mike Love gave him the nickname "Captain," and it stuck; Dragon began the tradition of wearing a nautical captain's hat to go along with the name. As The Captain in Captain & Tennille, Dragon was frequently silent and a man of very few words, playing a foil to his outgoing, vivacious wife, Toni Tennille.
Along with his wife, Tennille, Dragon is a vegan.
