Here’s what Martin from Lau had to say about Johnny Ringo McDonagh: “Now then, here’s proper. Stop messing around with the music and lay it down, and this is solid gold groove. Despite his moniker Johnny Ringo, I have always felt the power of Bonham in his playing, but then if he got called “Johny Bonham” that would just be confusing I suppose….Anyway, he’s laying it down heavy and Jackie Daly is absolute class as ever. Would love to see the rest of this film. M”
