"The King of Skiffle" was not only a massive influence on the Beatles but a great artist in his own right. I'd put him in the Early Influence section.

I agree with Chalkie's reasoning here. However, it is a little bit of a stretch to put him in an "Early" influence era as his earliest work came out in 1955, when the rock & roll era was already in swing in the States, I suppose it wasn't in Donegan's native UK though. So that might be an argument.
