SOME OF DON’S EARLY BANDS

 

Don got an early start. Probably his first public appearance (much to his Mother’s horror) was, at four years old, singing cowboy songs with a guitar and a coffee cup (for coins) on a Chicago street corner.  In one of Don’s Chicago early 1960s rock bands, the Fantasys, Carl Bonafede — later Chicago’s “Screaming Wild Man” — joined in on vocals.
