Singer Daryl Dragon, best known as "The Captain" of 1970s pop duo Captain and Tennille, has died at the age of 76.

Dragon died of renal failure in Arizona on Wednesday, publicist Harlan Boll said in a statement.

Captain and Tennille were best known for 1970s hit songs Love Will Keep Us Together and Do That to Me One More Time.

They also hosted their own television variety series from 1976-77.

Toni Tennille, who married Dragon in 1975, was with him when he died.

"He was a brilliant musician with many friends who loved him greatly. I was at my most creative in my life, when I was with him," she said in a statement.

The couple divorced in 2014, but remained friends.
