Donegan, Anthony James

Donegan, Anthony James
▪ 2003
      Scottish musician (b. April 29, 1931, Glasgow, Scot.—d. Nov. 3, 2002, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, Eng.), became known as the king of skiffle—a blend of music styles that encompassed folk, country, jazz, blues, and jug band—and in the process served as the inspiration for the British rock and roll musicians who followed in the 1960s, including Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Pete Townshend, and Van Morrison. Among his hits were the Leadbelly classic “Rock Island Line” (1956), which sold some three million singles, and the million-selling “Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour (on the Bedpost Overnight)?” (1959) and “My Old Man's a Dustman” (1960). Donegan was made MBE in 2000.
