GUEST,Roger Rettig Lonnie Donegan's guitarists (61* d) RE: Lonnie Donegan's guitarists..... 13 Aug 06


A PS....

Refering again to the '...New Orleans' clip:

Nick Nichols is still on drums at this point (Lonnie's original drummer), but Mickey Ashman has been replaced on bass by Peter Huggett. Huggett was also something of a violinist, and it's his fiddle obligato that can be heard on 'My Old Man's a Dustman'. Les Bennetts took over the bass for this song. This musical travesty is probably Lonnie Donegan's biggest hit!!!

Not long after this, Nick Nichols would leave the group, and would be replaced by drummer Pete Appleby.

RR

By the way...
There's soon going to be a new CD taken from Lonnie's last-ever tour - it'll be a chance to hear more of Paul Henry's work.
