Thread Name: What If Lonnie Donegan had not existed?
Subject: RE: What If Lonnie Donegan had not existed?
If Lonnie Donegan had not exited I would not missed my first ever gig. I went to St Mary's RC Junior School in Acton Green, London W4 and when Lonnie Donegan appeared at the nearby Chiswick Empire in 1956/57, the whole class booked and went to see him in the matinee performance. It was fantastic and since then I have never lost the urge to see live music.
