Thread Name: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
Last saw the man on the Chris Barber Band 40 year Re-union Tour, with Chris, Pat Halcox, Monty Sunshine et al. Chris said later, 'We were worried about Lonnie, after all he had had two heart attacks. In the event, he had more energy than the rest of us!'
Quite a compliment from a man I have never seen stand still!
He led me to Woody and Leadbelly and just about everything else came from that. Great guy!
