    Yep - Just to clarify, I see nothing wrong with Don or any of the guys playing for these kinds of events and making money for it. If people want to fork out money to hire entertainers for private events, then go for it.

    Wow.

    Let’s back up the truck a minute. This is what I posted earlier in the thread, emphasis added.

    Shouldnt he be working on that HC Broadway show and/or his memoirs?
    Nowhere in my comment did I say there was anything wrong with Don playing a private gig. How anyone could have read it that way is puzzling to me, especially after I have made my opinion quite clear about Don being free to pursue his career however he wants. At this stage of his life, having just turned 72 and returned from a European tour, it would seem he would want to kick back some and relax. That is all. Maybe I should have been more clear but I honestly didn’t expect backlash about a rather benign post.

    Of course it is well known he and the band as well as other musicians have performed at private parties and corporate gigs. Hence, the word “still.”

    The last sentence was added as a tongue-in-cheek way of saying I wish he would get on with these other projects, although of course he could very well be working on them at this time for all we know.

    Apparently now posting a casual comment is equivalent to making a “big deal” about something. While I’m glad the post stimulated some conversation, it’s unfortunate it came at the expense of being misconstrued.

    BTW, I heard on the radio that Don and Gwen sang HC together at the party.
