Three Dog Night co-founder Jimmy Greenspoon has passed away, the band announced Wednesday. He was 67.

Greenspoon was diagnosed with cancer last year with a brain tumor (metastatic melanoma), but soon learned he had three spots on his right lung and one on his liver.

A statement from Three Dog Night’s website reads, “We are very saddened at the passing of our dear friend and longtime band mate, Jimmy Greenspoon. Jimmy died peacefully at home today surrounded by his family. Please keep him and his loved ones in your prayers and your hearts”.

Greenspoon was a keyboardist and vocalist for the rock band, which he formed in 1968 with fellow vocalists Danny Hutton, Chuck Negron, and Cory Wells; guitarist Michael Allsup; bassist Joe Schermie; and drummer Floyd Sneed.

Greenspoon’s voice can be heard on hits like “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Your Song” and “Never Been to Spain.”

Jimmy toured with the band until recently. Throughout his career, he also performed with artists like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, and the Beach Boys.

Negron wrote on Twitter, “Today, God took another for his rock and roll band in heaven. I will miss you Jimmy and you will always be in my heart.”

There is a GoFundMe page set up for Greenspoon’s wife.

R.I.P. and our condolences to his family, friends, and many fans.
