I played bass and sang with Don ’72-’73, and again ’77-’78. The lineup was: Don, rhythm guitar and vocals; Lyle Toms (and/or) Jerry Hendrix, pedal steel; Larry Foster, drums. Later, there was: Phil Tarczon, lead guitar, vocals; Tom Jagmin, lead guitar, vocals; Roger Tarczon, drums; Bob Benson (RIP), drums.
He was also known (in our circle of friends) as “The Cosmic Cowboy” and “Uncle Dunky”. It was a definite experience playing with him, and every musician who ever shared that stage knows exactly what I mean.
Last I knew, he was living in the state of Washington, and still playing music. Keep on keepin’ on, Don. Thanks for the memories.
