Lonnie Donegan Obit

Guitarist Lonnie Donegan inspired John Lennon and Pete Townshend with his "skiffle" sound. He wrote such memorable hits as "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor (on the Bedpost Overnight)," and "Rock Island Line." Lonnie Donegan died yesterday at the age of 71. Robert Siegel has this remembrance.
