Three Dog Night keyboardist Jimmy Greenspoon died Wednesday at his home in Maryland at age 67 after a five-month battle against metastatic melanoma.

Greenspoon, who played with Three Dog Night until recently, joined the group in 1968. Three Dog Night is best known for the 1970 hit "Joy to the World (Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog)," and had 21 Top 40 hits between 1969 and 1975, Reuters said.

The band paid tribute to Greenspoon on its Facebook page on Wednesday.

"We are very saddened at the passing of our dear friend and longtime band mate, Jimmy Greenspoon," the post reads. "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 born in Los Angeles and raised in Beverly Hills.
