VH-1 Behind the Music: Captain & Tennille

The Captain…..Ed Norton
Toni Tennille…..Drew Barrymore

Toni Tenille: We first met in 1967.

The Captain: Yeah, and we thought we were making perfectly good music back then. We were very happy with our career, and then we heard Seargeant Pepper’s.

Toni Tenille: It just blew our mind.

The Captain: I just remember listening to that record over and over again, thinking, “How am I ever gonna make something as good as Seargeant Pepper’s?” And then it hit me: I’ll get a captain’s hat and put on this yachting jacket and start making everyone call me “The Captain”.

Toni Tenille: It was a brilliant ploy – a captain is just like a seargeant. They’re both in the Armed Forces – of music.

The Captain: Yeah! Anyway, we still didn’t know if we were going to make anything as terrific as Seargeant Pepper’s, but, as it turned out, we did.

Toni Tenille: Yeah, we did.

The Captain: It’s over now, but we’ll always have that. [ hears snickering ] Why are they laughing?

Toni Tenille: They’re not laughing.
