"I know what you're all thinking "Donovan wasn't good he was a cheap Bob Dylan" No! He wasn't like Bob, maybe at the begining of his career but by the late 60s he was decidedly his own man and had a loyal fanbase but all this has vanished by the 21st century with Donovan now a relative unknown in the world of music while his counterpart Bob is still regarded as a genius, Donovan can't even sell out his gigs."

"24 Cutesy Celt Donovan If a unicorn could sing songs, it would sound like Donovan. His curly mop, Scottish accent and fanciful songs, inevitably full of cutesy rhymes and childish doggerel, so enraptured stoned hippies that in 1967 he compared his power to that of Hitler. The moony, mystical minstrel routinely performed in a white robe surrounded by flowers and incense, and even declared he’d “come to lead” a change in America, one that would initiate “the beginning of a soft, quiet time"
