R.I.P. Dennis Dragon - one of the last touring Byrds drummers





From our contributor David E.:

R.I.P. Dennis Dragon, latter-day Byrds road drummer and younger brother of Tennille's "Captain" Daryl Dragon. 
I saw Dennis play with the Byrds in Charleston, SC in either '72 or '73 - I forget the year. 
And yes, Dennis really looked like this - even on the Byrds tour. 
He was also in the touring Beach Boys band around this time. 
Terrific drummer, too! 
Later led the tongue-in-cheek but quite fun "Surf Punks". 

Many thanks to David.
