The veteran pop band posted a statement on its official Facebook page on Wednesday that 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 joined Three Dog Night in 1968 and played on all of the group’s many hits, including chart-toppers “Mama Told Me (Not to Come),” “Joy to the World” and “Black and White,” and the top five singles “Shambala,” “Easy to Be Hard,” “An Old Fashioned Love Song,” “The Show Must Go On,” “One” and “Never Been to Spain.” He continued to perform with the band until just recently.

Greenspoon announced that he’d been diagnosed with melanoma in October and launched a GoFundMe campaign to help his wife, Susie, pay his medical expenses. The initiative has brought in more than $23,000 so far. After his passing, Susie wrote on the GoFundMe website, “My hero, best friend, soul mate and husband and the love of my life and keyboardist extrordinaire, Jimmy Greenspoon, passed away…after a short but fierce battle with metastatic melanoma. My heart is broken, but I am relieved that his suffering in the last 48 hours of his life is over. He now rests in the arms and love of God. Thank you for your support, prayers and donations.”

Meanwhile, former Three Dog Night singer Chuck Negron, who left the group in 1985, posted his own a tribute to Greesnpoon on his Facebook page.

“I will miss you Jimmy and you will always be [in] my heart,” writes Negron. “I have been reflecting about our years in our 20’s and 30’s traveling the world together, laughing and playing the music we both loved. Last time I spoke to him, I told him how much I loved him and how important he was in my life. I am sad that I won’t have the opportunity to tell him over and over again, how much I love him.”
