It is a sad day (even though it was many days ago), when the muskrat love duo splits up and calls it quits. For the couple who made "Love Will Keep Us Together" a chart-topper, one is thinking "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do," these days.
The LA News expert, @GabbyBirkman, tweeted this morning, "Looks like the muskrat loving' is over!

People Magazine opens their article online, "Their biggest hit was "Love Will Keep Us Together," but '70s singing duo the Captain & Tennille are getting a divorce."
The exclusive came by way of RumorFix's article, "Love couldn't keep them together."
The Captain and Tennille duo brought a sensitivity to their music in the 70's and encouraged young lovers in their endeavor to stay together. They had an innovative way (in that day and age) of presenting their music. Even their hit, "Muskrat Love," was a cover, and yet did better on the charts than the original. That particular song is an excellent representation of Dragon's ability to create "sounds" with his Keyboard. This was before the time of samplers and all the techno-wizardry that is available in the music industry today.
The list of credits for this team, as well as each of them individually, is impressive. Dragon was the keyboardist for the Beach Boys and Tennille currently sings the Big Band style, drawing from her vast training in the musical arts.
Captain and Tennille are getting a divorce, so love is dead, just FYI.

Their divorce causes speculation as to whether or not love will indeed keep them together in spite of a divorce. Only time will tell, but we can remember their music, as it lives on in the past and now with it's recent, new-found front stage buzz.
