Lost and found: Don Dixon prays like a mantis



As a producer, Don Dixon became legend for his work on REM’s first two albums and the first three albums by The Smithereens. Raised in South Carolina, Dixon is also a prolific performer, recording great songs like 1985's Praying Mantis. Unlike Kim Mitchell, Don Dixon has issues with his male pattern baldness as he inexplicitly throws a Holiday Inn towel on his head halfway into the video.

Dixon is married to musician Marti Jones and still churns out music and has his own website
