Musician and TV commercial jingle writer Thomas Webster Dawes was born on July 25, 1943 in Albany, New York. He met fellow musician, Don Dannemann, while attending Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. Dawes and Donnemann founded the folksy pop-rock group, The Cyrkle, in the mid-60s; the band had a big hit with the extremely bouncy and upbeat song, "Red Rubber Ball", in 1966 and were the opening act for The Beatles for their 1966 concert tour of America. Tom co-composed the score for the tawdry sexploitation feature, The Minx (1969). Read more...
