Welcome to another edition of Dead End.

This week we say goodbye to Denny Doherty, founding member 
of the 1960's pop group, The Mamas & The Papas. The group 
broke onto the scene in 1966 with their top 10 hit "California 
Dreamin'." They recorded and performed from 1965 to 1968; 
releasing five albums and charting ten hit singles before 
they broke up in 1968.

DENNY DOHERTY, SINGER OF THE MAMAS AND THE PAPAS, DEAD AT 66

Denny Doherty of the 1960's pop group, The Mamas & The Papas, 
died Friday at his home in Mississauga, near Toronto, of an 
abdominal aneurysm. He was 66. "He was one of the greatest 
tenors in rock 'n' roll," his former band mate, Michelle 
Phillips, told Rolling Stone. Doherty's death leaves Phillips 
as the only surviving member of the group, known for such 
hits as "California Dreamin'," "Monday, Monday," and "Dream a 
Little Dream." Mama Cass Elliott died at 32 in 1974, and Papa 
John Phillips died at 65 in 2001. Doherty met Elliott in 1963, 
and joined her group, The Big Three. Doherty and Elliott then 
joined John and Michelle Phillips in The Magic Circle, which 
became The Mamas & The Papas in 1965, Rolling Stone said. 
Their first single, "California Dreamin'," hit No. 4 on the 
Billboard Hot 100. The group broke up shortly after the 1967 
Monterey International Pop Festival, which they headlined and 
helped organize. Doherty appeared on Broadway in 1974 in "The 
Man in the Moon," and premiered the autobiographical musical 
"Dream a Little Dream" in Toronto in 2001. He and John 
Phillips formed a new version of The Mamas & The Papas in 
1982, featuring John's daughter, actress Mackenzie Phillips.

      GEORGE SMATHERS, FORMER U.S. SENATOR, DEAD AT 93 

George Smathers, a former U.S. senator from South Florida, 
died this weekend at the age of 93. The Miami Herald reported 
that Smathers, who gained national notoriety for a deceptive 
speech he never actually gave during the 1950 Democratic 
primary, died Saturday in his native Florida. During the 
infamous primary, Smathers was said to have made a speech in 
which he bashed incumbent Florida Sen. Claude Pepper and used 
tricky language to confuse potential voters, a move he 
vehemently denied. "It's a kind of an insult to the people of 
Florida to think that you can tell them that kind of junky 
stuff and get away with it," he once said of the concept. 
"The people in Florida are not that dumb." A confidante of 
President John F. Kennedy, Smathers also enjoyed three terms 
in the U.S. Senate and another two as a member of the U.S. 
House of Representatives. The newspaper said he is survived 
by his wife, Carolyn; two sons, Bruce and John; a sister, 
Virginia Myers, and three grandchildren.

      E. HOWARD HUNT, WATERGATE CONSPIRATOR, DEAD AT 88 

Watergate conspirator E. Howard Hunt Jr. died Tuesday in Miami 
at the age of 88. His wife Laura said he died of pneumonia at 
North Shore Medical Center, The New York Times reported. The 
June 1972 burglary at the headquarters of the Democratic 
National Committee led to an administration coverup which 
eventually led to President Richard Nixon's resignation. Hunt 
recruited four of the five burglars, The Washington Post said, 
but did not participate in the burglary itself. "I will always 
be called a Watergate burglar, even though I was never in the 
damn place," Hunt told The Miami Herald in 1997, the Post 
said. "But it happened. Now I have to make the best of it." He 
was charged in the incident and served 33 months in prison. A 
veteran of World War II, he also had a career in the CIA, 
though he was working as a White House "security consultant" 
at the time of the burglary. Hunt was born in Hamburg, N.Y., 
on Oct. 9, 1918.

  THORNTON JAMES 'POOKIE HUDSON, 1950s CROONER, DEAD AT 72

Thornton James "Pookie" Hudson, lead singer of the doo-wop 
group The Spaniels, has died of cancer at his home in Wash-
ington. He was 72. The Spaniels achieved fame with their 1954 
hit, "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight," which Hudson wrote 
for his girlfriend at the time, Artistsdirect.com said. Hudson 
had a brief solo career after The Spaniels disbanded in the 
1960s. He re-formed the group with a new lineup in the early 
1970s, issuing a new version of "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Good-
night" after the song was featured in the film "American 
Graffiti." His smooth tenor voice was said to have influenced 
Smokey Robinson and Aaron Neville, said Bill Carpenter, 
Hudson's publicist. "He really made a blueprint for what a 
crooner should sound like," Carpenter said. He continued to 
perform until cancer forced him to retire last fall. Hudson, 
who died Jan. 16, is survived by his wife, nine children and 
16 grandchildren.
