Lonnie, we just watched your DVD The Black & White Television years. What a great DVD we loved watching the old footage. You are a true icon of Australian rock n roll era. We love what you do -- ..saying on mass that it was the best concert they had ever been to. From my point of view I think it's a fair statement to say that Lonnie is the only artist to emerge from the Golden Era & remain a vital stand-out box office attraction -- it was an awesome show I went 2 times and took friends they enjoyed the concert also still singing as good as ever and just loved the format and stories about the songs and singers well done Lonnie and the Leemen rock on forever -- You were a great entertainer years ago and you are even better now -- I had some guests attending & like me, they were very impressed with Lonnie’s show. -- His courtesy, professionalism, song quality & great all round showmanship was outstanding -- Hes just a pure Rock n Roller with an unfaltering voice singing very naturally. Loved every minute of it
