Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
WLD,

This is all that's really important in the final scheme of things.
If he made your life richer, than that's the most important thing
you can say about him.

I feel that way about so many people whose music I revere but wouldn't care to know them or with some be in the same room with them.

What they do personally is not as important to me as the wonderful
music they make as long as I don't have to deal with their negative
idiosyncracies. That's the beauty of recordings and the separation
of performer/audience.

I prefer not to know certain "stars" for this reason. I like to keep
my picture of them through their art and not their character.

what really can you argue with.... the talent, the style, the effort, the professionalism. Offstage I didn't know - some people have hinted he wasn't very nice. I'm sorry if this was so. All I can say is he gave a lot to me, and to me he stil sounds pretty good.
