Subject: RE: The late great Lonnie Donegan (1931-2002)
In Norwich many years ago we had The Oily Rag Band, an old-time 'skiffle' group, complete with washboard-and-thimble, and a box with a bass string. They always performed in the street outside Jarrolds department store, and I'd stand there for ages enjoying the music.
I agree with Joe that Lonnie's best number was Rock Island Line.
Lonnie was a kind of 'Teddy boy'.
