I've searched the forum & maybe I missed it, but has anybody read the new Lonnie Donegan bio by Patrick Humphries? Let's face it, he was a major influence for both folkies & British rock musicians.

I'll look out for this. The one by Spencer Leigh was largely a cut'n' paste job from press interviews & articles.

I found out about it after the publishing house re-tweeted a comment I had made about Lonnie on Twitter. I'd like to get it if/when I get the cash. I love Lonnie's music, and I don't think it would be a stretch to call him one of the most influential musicians ever. He could sing anything.
