Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
A very great man once said, if you don't like Bob Wills, you can kiss my ass.......

In my reticent and rather understated sort of way English way, I find myself feeling rather the same about Lonnie Donnegan.

Don't want to bad mouth the people here that he's been compared unfavourably to. And I'm not going to. But god knows Lonnie was a top man. A great artist, great interpreter of folksong, shit hot musician. If you don't get it, I feel sort of sorry for you - the fault wasn't with him or his efforts or lack of talent.

all the best - but say nice things about Lonnie
