Ain’t it so in 1959, was a big hit for Lonnie Lee. This was followed by Starlight Starbright then in 1960, Yes Indeed I do, I found a new love, Defenceless. In 1961 and 1962 Sit Around and Talk, When the bells stop ringing, Sitting by the river, Don’t you know Pretty baby and others.
His last #1 record was in 1969 with his own song ‘ Sad Over Someone’ (SOS)
Over all he had 8 national #1 hits and 5 Gold Records. Lonnie currently tours Australia, and the world playing your favourites, the music you grew up with,
In October 2007 he toured with fellow performers Crash Craddock, Bobby Vee and Lesley Gore from that original Rock’n’Roll era and many still say he was the stand out on that tour. It was an historic tour as 49 years before, he had toured with Crash with The Everley Brothers and other US stars of the time.
This takes Lonnie full circle from his teenager years in the early 1950s when he listened and sang along to these songs on the radio.
Lonnie makes all the songs his own in his Cry Show, with all the influences that makes Lonnie Lee what he is today.
