ColinThis is the Donny who sang with Bull and James for a while, is it not? I remember he went into teaching for a while and had run a small business in the last few years.

I always found him to be a kind and decent soul, How terribly sad that a relatively young man who gave so much to so many of us as a singer and to the young when he was a teacher should die.

Please accept the condolences of the Clarks and of the de Frises.

Sue R.Oh no another of my earliest Briland acquaintances passes on. I first met Donny when he played in a wonderful but short-lived calypso trio with Brother Paul Percentie and James Major back around 1969. My sincerest condolences go out to his family at this sad time. May God bless!
