February 24, 2017 "It was 1961 or 62. I want to see Lonnie at Hawaiian Garden. People told me go here this guy I played a little sax. So I went there I never heard anybody play as good as he did he could rock the house or he could sing ballad he had a wonderful voice he never asked my name but if I had a chance to talkto him he was always friendly. He loved his fans and since then I bought his albums 45 or what whatever I could find I got most of everything he did but not all of it I have a nice collection to remember Lonnie rest in peace" - Leonard Lleifling (Cincinnati Westside, OH)

December 10, 2016 "So sorry to hear of his transition. This girl fell in love with Lonnie's guitar playing after hearing his very first lick along with SRV. Will never be forgotten. RIP you two." - Barbara Rose (Houston, TX)
June 23, 2016 "From "Memphis" and "Wham" to "Too Rock For Country, Too Country For Rock 'N' Roll," I have been a huge LM guitar fan forever. Have all the albums. Loved him as a singer, too. Fabulous voice -- and really knew how to sing. He could "put it in the pocket," as they say. Once bought a book about guitar virtuosos so I could read about Lonnie. When I searched cover to cover and he wasn't in it, I took that book outside and burned it to ashes! Someone on here said he was under appreciated, and, sadly, I think that is a large understatement. But at least those of us who know the best music is not on the radio had the pleasure of being entertained by LM for a whole lifetime. I know I did. RIP." - Don Tomlinson (Houston, TX)
