Leave Donovan alone...didn't you hear him say "I was fired with the mission to bring Celtic music back to popular culture and I'm so glad the new generations have taken up the torch"

If it wasn't for Donovan we probably wouldn't have had Bob Dylan. After all it didn't take long before what was going on down in St Ives reverberated around the world and eventually reached Greenwich Village.

Not only that...he taught the Beatles how to finger-pick guitar you know. He even appeared on 'Sergeant Pepper'.....

In both folk and popular music there's no doubting all roads lead back to Donovan.

Not in his own mind anyway....
