Sadly, Don’s brother and bandmate, Phil, died in 2014 of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Prior to his death, the brothers weren’t always close. They disagreed a lot and didn’t speak for a decade. They toured with solo albums that never did as well as their band. However, they reunited in 1983 and toured on and off for several years.
Don is survived by his third wife Adela, his children and grandchildren, and his mother Margaret. RIP Don.
