Mamas and Papas' Denny Doherty dies at 66
"There's a part of this thing that if I'm not careful, I'd be just a blob on the stage crying my guts out," Doherty told The Associated Press at the time. "Everybody knows about death and dying and sadness, so it's an exercise in staying in the moment and not getting maudlin about your friends dying."Another Papa gone. The Mamas and the Papas are playing now. And the harmonies are still incredible.
