This is the counterpart of the "Hollywood Death Watch" thread. Today: Denny Doherty, one of the founding member of The Mamas and the Papas. The others were the late John Phillips and Cass Elliot, and Michelle Phillips. They had a nice blending of voices and when Phillips was younger and less drug-addled, he was a talented song-writer. Doherty's problem was alcohol, mostly. After Elliot's death, aged 32, the band tried to replace her, without a great deal of success.
