For every start of a journey, there must be an end. His journey has sadly come to an end on earth.
Don Van Winkle knew by his stage name as Major Van Winkle was a talented singer who spent his childhood growing up in a musical South Philly home.
He is the grandson of Maje McDonnell, a 1950’s Phillies pitching coach.
From falling asleep in his crib to Mozart-baby cassettes to learning how to play the theme from Jaws on the family piano, Major became obsessed with music. Major grew up constantly listening to his parents’ eclectic collection of classic Rock n’ Roll, R&B and Soul records. On weekends, Major had the unique opportunity to see his father perform at live gigs, as well as watch his Uncle’s band, Philly’s own Soul Survivors, perform.
Major adored the classic, soulful, oldies sounds that made up his first exposure to music. Due to these influences, Major started playing the drums as his first musical expression.
In his pre-teen years, Major discovered a subset of music called ‘Hip Hop’. At first, the genre was foreign to him, but something kept intriguing him about this mode of music as he began to mentally blend it with the classic sounds he grew up with.
