Legendary Lonnie - Stoke legend

'Legendary Lonnie' is one of the great characters of the Potteries. One of the earliest rock ‘n rollers, starting a band in 1959, he’s been playing rock guitar ever since.
Despite his advancing age, he recently re-issued one of his CDs for the American market!

He had a record shop in Stoke town for a long while in the seventies and eighties. This dilapidated sign – a cartoon image of the great man himself - was all that remained of the shop when he left it, but even this is gone now. I managed to snap a photo of it before it was ripped down.
