Blues Musician. Don founded the "Titanic Blues Band" in 1991. His musical abilities were unquestionably one of the best and very popular on the night club circuit. He was a promotor of goodwill and unification. Don liked to wear his special T-shirt during performances "No Black, No White, Just the Blues". He and his friend, Bill Brown, Jr., the lead player for the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, died in an early morning residential fire in Springfield, Missouri. (bio by: J. D. McConnell)
