Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
I wasn't terribly impressed by Jack White in the movie, and know little else about him except that his band (duo actually) started getting a lot of press this past year.

Certainly don't know him well enough to have consulted him personally before posting on Mudcat, Kevin -- ;^)

The mere fact of being a rocker playing old-style music in a high-profile film undoubtedly gave him lots of extra instant credit/credibility.

At any rate, at his age (or the age I presume he is, anyway), and as an American, I really doubt he ever felt the effects of Lonnie's music, except maybe *very* indirectly (e.g., by way of John Lennon).
