Thread Name: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Subject: RE: Hedge and Donna - Where are they now ?
Indeed...what a fun thread! I'm another Whittier grad, and was in the same class with them..1967. I met Hedge during our first week at school, and was knocked out by his version of "Just Departees." Donna was already known as a great singer, and had toured with, I believe, Stan Kenton. In a speech class where we had to sell something, Hedge blew everyone away when he put Donna on a block and "sold" her. In, I think, '69 they opened for Harry Belafonte at the Greek Theater...a great performance once Hedge finally got his guitar tuned....Harry glowingly introduced them, emphasizing that they were married, which was still radical at that time. A few years ago a client of mine (hypnotherapy) brought his name up as her past therapist in La Jolla...what a small world we live in. I did not get the impression it was trance therapy... more like group therapy.
