GUEST,TheOldMole Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him (34) RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him 11 Jan 04

I love Lonnie Donegan. He had a delivery that was fervent and powerful. He had a deep love for the songs he sang. He may not have taken "Rock Island Line" away from Leadbelly, but I don't believe that's the only way to gauge a version of a song.

And he does own "Frankie and Johnny," which is no easy thing with a song that's had so many versions.

Also, Lonnie Donegan was, and is, beloved by the generation of British musicians who followed him, for his great generosity as well as for his musical example.
