Biography

Don Lang (born Gordon Langhorn, 18 January 1925, in Halifax, Yorkshire died August 1992, in Surrey), was a trombone player who led his own British band called Don Lang & his Frantic Five. He appeared on the first BBC-TV show for teenagers called Six-Five Special for which he also recorded the theme song. In 1958 his cover version of “Witch Doctor” reached the Top 10 and he played trombone on the Beatles’ famous White Album.

During the 1950s he lived in Denmark Avenue, Wimbledon, and could be seen driving his pink Vauxhall Cresta, Britain’s answer to Elvis Presley’s pink Cadillac, the 200 yards to Wimbledon village’s upmarket grocer, Cullens, where he might buy what seemed to impoverished primary school children of the time to be extravagant luxuries, and a sure sign of stardom, such as out of season strawberries.
