    Dobie Gray, Singer Known for ‘Drift Away,’ Dies

    The cause was complications of cancer surgery, said his friend and fellow songwriter George Reneau.

    Mr. Gray, who sang and wrote songs in a range of styles including rhythm-and-blues, country, disco and gospel, had his first Top 20 hit in 1965 with “The ‘In’ Crowd,” an upbeat hymn to hipness that captured the social restlessness of the time.

    He said he received no royalties for “The ‘In’ Crowd.”


    RIP Dobie
