Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
Apparently Donegan called Moe Asch at Folkways Records demanding royalty collections for Leadbelly songs. Moe said he would be happy for Donnegan to come by to collect them and he would cheerfully take extra Leadbelly recordings and one by one break each one over Lonnie's head. This is lieu of royalties.

Ego run amok.
