I’d done a rock version of his beautiful ballad and when I shook hands with him, I said, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry.’ I told him afterwards, ‘I can sing ballads, you just haven’t heard me yet.’ He said, ‘I was in the era of crooners and we had to sing like that. You’re with the Beatles now and you’ve done a great job.’ I thought, ‘If the Beatles accept me, if Dick Haymes accepts me, I’ll stick around.”

    While discussing Love Me Darling, Lonnie spat on the floor and said the Rolling Stones’ version of Howlin’ Wolf’s Little Red Rooster was a bowdlerisation of the song and a terrible version. Bill was very upset about that and when he met him, he said that was the pot calling the kettle black. They ended up as good friends.

    Howlin’ Wolf the Mystery guest
    Donegan said, “I don’t care of that kind of blues” that is electric blues. Part of the anti-electric feeling of trad people at the time.
