tony donald
musician: bass | guitar tech
associated with simple minds: 1975-1978


Tony Donald Tony Donald, bass player and early school friend of Jim, Charlie and Brian.

He was part of one of their earliest bands, Biba-Rom!, before being recruited into the Abusers line-up.

When that line-up broke down, the fledgling Simple Minds would practise and rehearse in his uncle's lampshade factory.

He stayed with the band as it slowly built up again, witnessing the recruitment of Duncan Barnwell and Mick MacNeil. However, for reasons never given, he left in April 1978, to be replaced by Derek Forbes.

He didn't stay away long, and ended up rejoining the team as Charlie's guitar tech.
