Brian's Statement about Daryl's passing today: "So sad to hear about Daryl Dragon. Daryl was a great guy and a hell of a musician and keyboard player. I feel very bad about this. Love & Mercy to Daryl, his family and friends."(Daryl played with the Beach Boys for a time in the early '70s if I recall correctly - and received co-writer credit on a couple of songs - 'Cuddle Up' w/Dennis is the only one I recall at the moment though) __________________

I saw him with the band at Leicester in 1972 (Toni was there too). The Captain led a roadies' jam during the interval.
A great musician, sadly missed.

GREAT musician. This is sad news. Both he and Toni were amazing in the Beach Boys. But his work within the band was very important as they made their transition in the very late 60's and on into the 70's.
