Denny Doherty, the Canadian member of the Mamas and Papas, has died

January 19, 2007 - 15:42

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. (CP) - Denny Doherty, the Canadian member of the Mamas and the Papas folk group, has died.

He was 66.

A family member says the singer-songwriter in the popular '60s group died earlier today at his home in Mississauga after a short illness.

The Halifax-born Doherty led the group onto the charts with hits including "Monday, Monday," "California Dreamin," "Dream a Little Dream of Me" and "Dedicated to the One I Love."

He started his music career in Montreal in 1960 as the co-founder of the Colonials, which later became the Halifax Three.

In the mid-'60s, Time magazine called the Mamas and the Papas one of the top two bands in America and the band was inducted into the Rock and Role Hall of Fame.

Doherty was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1996.

In addition to his singing career, Doherty is known for his work on the children's TV series Theodore Tugboat.
