We just learned that Don Ciccone passed away.
He was 70.
Don founded The Critters in the 1960′s and then worked with The Four Seasons and Tommy James & The Shondells.
The Critters had a big hit in 1966 called “Mr. Dieingly Sad”. It was a great pop song, nice lyrics & melody.
In the 1970′s he worked with The Four Seasons in songs like “Who loves you” & “December 1963 Oh what a night”, a couple of their big hits.
Don was also the musical director for Tommy James & The Shondells, another very successful group.
RIP Don Ciccone.
