Willie-O Is This Man An Icon ? (90* d) RE: Is This Man An Icon ? 07 Oct 09


Donovan saved my arse once in the 80s. Busking in Toronto, yr humble idiot servant had his car towed (turns out those little tow-truck icon signs mean just that) and was totally broke after getting it back. Mr Donovan Leitch was playing a concert at the Danforth Music Hall so we went and busked the lineup--made some great and much-needed $$. At one point (break time I guess) he came out to the sidewalk and seemed very pleased to see us there doing our thing.

It was my birthday, didn't see his show but made beer, dinner and gas money (other gig we were supposed to have fell through--different story) --I've had a soft spot for him ever since! Liked his early music, especially.

W-O
