Customer Review

on 9 January 2013
This is a very good book by Patrick Humphries about a man who was a MASSIVE influence on British pop music. Almost single handedly he created the Skiffle boom of the mid 1950's.Skiffle groups proliferated and evolved into the music revolution known as "Merseybeat". He also gave great impetus to the Folk Revival in the U.K. which also took place in the 1950's Like most great performers, and make no mistake, Donegan was an incredible live performer, he was a very complex individual who was not always easy to deal with.
Patrick Humphies has written about the "difficult Donegan" whilst also recognising his many qualities and his MASSIVE contribution to British popular music.
