Retired...

Yes, it has happened. Don White finally retired from being a professional musician after playing for over 59 years. To be eligible to receive a military sponsored stipend he can't have any income. So up in Barrington on New Years Eve. Dad played his last paid gig. Hard to believe. We'll see how much people will be able to get him to play for free...

I just love your dad. What a guy!

He's great. And I'll be able to say "I knew him when . . .".

Sad that the stupid laws force something like this.

Wait. Your dad played Accordion? What?

I've always enjoyed the musical stylings of Don White. I'm still waiting for the CDs, though.
