why are you all being so horrid and snooty about donovan?

for millions of us seeing him appear in 1965 on Ready Steady Go was really, really exciting and was what got us into folk music. And he went on to write loads of fantastic songs that are still loved by millions.

"Real beatniks say Donovan a fake!" Yikes!
