Larry Donn !




Larry Donn Gillihan was born and raised in Bono, Arkansas in 1941.
He decided it was time he got in on the act and so he formed his first band in 1957 at the ripe old age of 16. In 1959 he recorded "Honey Bun" on the Vaden label. "Honey Bun" and the flip side "That's What I Call a Ball" have since become Rockabilly standards performed by musicians all over the world.

I didn't even know this was here. I know who Randy D. is. Good musician, good singer. Let me start by saying I admit everything. Whatever anybody says about me, bad or good, I admit it. I think it's best just to go ahead and admit everything, then there'll be no surprises. Thanks to the Rev for putting me on. Now, how about checking out my new CD, BURNING! at cdbaby.com.
Thanks, Larry Donn.
