Don Ciccone Biography (Wikipedia)

Don Ciccone (born Donald Joseph Ciccone; February 28, 1946 – October 8, 2016) was an American singer, songwriter and musician. He was a founding member of the pop group The Critters singing their biggest hits "Younger Girl" and "Mr. Dieingly Sad". The latter he wrote about his girlfriend Kathy Cobb before he entered the Air Force during the time of the Vietnam War. Kathy later became his wife. When The Critters's first album started to take off, Don was in the Air Force and the band had to tour without him which is why many videos on YouTube do not feature him. Jimmy Ryan is lip syncing.

Don was born in Jersey City, NJ on February 28, 1946. He was the son of an immigrant father, Vito Ciccone, who owned and operated Bill Williams Auto Sales in the 1950s. From the age of 5, Don grew up in a 56-room mansion in Plainfield, NJ. In the 1970s, Don Ciccone joined the Four Seasons, where he played guitar and bass and also contributed lead vocals to songs including "December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)" and "Rhapsody." After the Seasons, he joined Tommy James and the Shondells as their bassist, through 1987.
