The 73-year-old Captain, who played the keyboard on their popular recordings, said he really didn’t know why his wife, 71, filed for divorce. He said he’s got to figure that out for himself first.

Captain & Tennille had a long string of pop hits in the 1970s, beginning with the song written by pop singer-songwriter Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield, “Love Will Keep Us Together.” (That’s why they sang “Sedaka is back” at the end of the number one song.) The duo won a Grammy for the record of the year with that song in 1975.

Some of their other well-known songs were “Do That to Me One More Time” - which was another chart-topping recording for them - “Muskrat Love.,” and "Lonely Nights."

The couple never had children.
