Don is one of the all-time greats. He was a neighbor of ours. He lived in Lanikai which is next to Kailua on Oahu. I grew up listening to his records, and Marian and I finally got to see his show in Waikiki last year. I hope he comes through this okay, but I'm afraid we're about to lose another legend.

tiny bubbles...in your blood stream...

Amazing how some old timers cling on to life. When I saw his performance in LA a couple of years ago, he seemed sooo burned out, having performed non stop for 50 years.

Well I wish him another 50, hold on Don!

My girlfrend and I bought tickets to the show the last time that we were in Oahu. Unfortunately, Don decided to take a plane to southern California that night. I still haven't seen him play yet. So lame.

Please hang on there Don. Get well soon.

I've got to say a big ALOHA to Mr. Ho. He and his people gave me a green light to Tiki Farm to take his image to market. Now, I've held back as I didn't want to interfere with his affairs and I am just now lauching some designs as they are in his honor. He is truly Hawaii's Legendary Entertainer!! God bless & rock on Don Ho!
Mahaloz,
Holden
