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.

    Worked for Don at Wolf Lake Ranch ’71-’73. Looking for Billy Hall, bass player and cousin of Bob Benson. What a kick those days were! Knew all the guys from Red Apple Road, also. Where are they all now? Thanks for the memories. = Quiet Storm

    Wow! My dad will want to see this. He’s Tom Jagmin, but didn’t see him in the video. Anyone have any footage of him from then? It would make his day 😀

    What a Kick! I always wished I had had some footage of Don from the good ol’ days…….69-74 at the Ranch. That place was some experience, and Don made it all happen. Trout-a rama, honky tonks, and those lovely young ladies around Wolf Lake. If anybody knows his whereabouts, or has an records he cut (Toe Gay) label……I am interested in any memorabilia.

    I played drums with Don and Keith Brown (KRB) and Jerry back in 1979-80? We actually backed up Lorrie Morgan who at the time was traveling with Ron Gaddis at the Fireplace Inn in Interlochen MI. I still have one of Lorries first demo records (on a 45).

    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.
