Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
If it wasn't for Lonnie Doegan, you would never have had the beatles or the Rolling Stones, and the same goes for Bill Hailey, if it wasn't for him you would never have had Elivs.

So Lonnie and Billy are both Kings, one of Skiffle and the other of Rock and Roll.

Elivis was just lucky that is all, don't get me wrong he was good at what he did, but as I say it was people like Bill Hailey and Fats Domino that intrudced the world to Rock and Roll before Elvis.
