nager 9 years since Lonnie Donegan's passing (1931-2002) (8) RE: 9 years since Lonnie Donegan's passing (1931-2002) 09 Nov 11

I too will show my age by remembering those early skiffle days with Lonnie and so many others... I had an older brother who bought skiffle records and of course I HAD to listen to them too while he played them on his gramophone while I tried to get to sleep - no choice, we shared the same bedroom. I had forgotten all about Six Five Special. By the time I was 13-14 I started to play the guitar and it was definitely the early influence of Lonnie and others such as Wally Whyton and the Vipers etc that got me started. Threads like this leave me soggy with nostalgia ....
