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.

    We were Dougherty fans for many years. The Hungry Horse. The bungalow. Don, Jay, Larry, Billy, Hank, Lyle A lot of years and a lot of great memories…and too many oak leaves and too much scotch at the ranch! Thanks for the memories. Robin, Mary and Fred.
