Thread Name: Who influenced you to become a musician
Subject: RE: Who influenced you to become a musician
I named Lonnie Donegan as main influence, he kick-started so many of us. But the anonymous guest a while back reminded me of the great encouragement you can get from kind words from musicians you admire. I got enormous boosts when I was wet behind the ears from Gary Davis and Alexis Korner, so I'd like to credit for that here. They were great people, and took time to give me good attention and advice.
