Thread Name: What If Lonnie Donegan had not existed?
Subject: RE: What If Lonnie Donegan had not existed?
One of the first records I remember listening to was Rock Island Line. I saw LD at the Empire in Liverpool when Chris Barber was playing double bass in his band. I also recall seeing the Chris Barber band some time later and remember his banjo player doing some sort of solo. Chris immediatley said something like "Sit down -I remember what happened to the last banjo player in this band who stood up and did a solo"
I think that LD also had at least one record banned by the BBC
"Diggin. my potatoes??"
