    They played a clip of Do That To Me One More Time today...the bass tone on that track is thicker and sweeter then molasses.
  5. Saw that earlier today. Speculation from some folks is that the divorce was filed strictly for financial reasons: the medical bills may bankrupt him, at least if they are divorced she may be protected.

    They were a talented duo and they did some great music.

    How many of you knew that Toni Tennille sang back up vocals on a couple songs on Pink Floyd's The Wall album?

    AWESOME! A Sheilds and Yarnell reference! I thought I was the only one who remembered that piece of weirdness.

    How's the muskrat figure into this development? :meh:

    Neither of them get custody of the Muskrat since he was originally recorded and written by by Willis Alan Ramsey as Muskrat Candlelight and then the band America covered it as Muskrat Love before the Captain and Toenail covered it.

    Wow, I had to Google that, I thought for sure you were pulling our collective muskrat whiskers. Very weird - I kind of like America's version best. Capt. & Tennile were always weird...I thought for sure they would be outed as being brother & sister or something. Sorry, just wasn't a fan.

    Even if their product may not have been to everyone's taste they were talented.

    :D Yeah, but they could have at least given it a shot. People these days just give up on a marriage way too soon...

    It probably had to with medical bills. That's the rumor going around.

    A friend of mine from high school and I had a game where we would sing annoying songs to try to get them stuck in the other one's head. Two of our favorite earworm songs were "Muskrat love" and "Willie don't be a hero".

    She and I have been friends for forty years. This morning she saw the news about the divorce. This means that when I woke up and answered the phone this morning she was singing "Muskrat love". It still makes me laugh.

    It's a shame though if they have to divorce for financial reasons.
