GUEST, Obit: Lonnie Donegan (1931-2002) (60* d) RE: Obit: Lonnie Donegan 08 Nov 02

It was an experience working for Lonnie in the early 70's as keyboard player. Only sorry he replaced me with Elton J. Hard taskmaster but very nice guy. My mum and dad (now in their 80's) will never forget the bottles of champagne. Can I suggest listening to Lonnie's not-as-famous-now songs i.e. "It was a very good year", "Seven Golden Daffodils", "Without You" and his version (as the writer) of "Never gonna fall in love again" - beautiful. Were you fans out there aware that he was responsible for the release of "Nights in White Satin" - Moody Blues. He will be missed and I only wish I could have played one last time with the old wrinklies - Roger, Pete and Ray. ........"Porky" (my nickname from the man himself, but not telling you why!!!!!!!!)
