Ah, tea. So, about this eco-mission …. He has had periods of intense introspection, deepening his relationship with transcendental meditation with sundry Beatles, mainly George Harrison, and periods of hightailing it to Bhutan and Nepal to meet Buddhists in exile, but since he got his first contract in , he has never really stopped releasing music.
He has to go wherever the mission takes him. It takes four minutes. If you want me to expand, I can. As the encounter turns into something more like a recognisable conversation, he circles again and again back to the start of his career, meeting Linda, losing her, finding her again.
He is delightful and maddening, although maddening can get the upper hand. Everything — jazz, blues, folk, pop music, literature, feminism, ecology — I just absorbed it like a sponge, and I was prepared, because I had had poetry of noble thought read to me as a child.
He thus got his first TV performance before he had even released a single, and slips into the third person, awestruck. How did he do that?
And the cameraman loved it, and the directors loved it, and the producers loved it. How did I learn it so early? I can really impress and project a very special feeling.
He is also the stepfather of Brian Jones' and Linda Lawrence's son, Julian Jones , also known as Julian Brian Jones Leitch. Donovan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in Not to be confused with his son Donovan Leitch.

THE SENSUAL DONOVAN. LADY OF THE STARS. Pennebaker 's film Dont Look Back documenting Dylan's tour. Near the start of the film, Dylan opens a newspaper and exclaims, "Donovan?
Who is this Donovan? Throughout the film Donovan's name is seen next to Dylan's on newspaper headlines and on posters in the background, and Dylan and his friends refer to him consistently.
Donovan finally appears in the second half of the film, along with Derroll Adams , in Dylan's suite at the Savoy Hotel despite Donovan's management refusing to allow journalists to be present, saying they did not want "any stunt on the lines of the disciple meeting the messiah".
Tambourine Man " but with different words. When confronted with lifting his tune, Donovan said that he thought it was an old folk song.
Dylan later told Melody Maker : "He played some songs to me. I like him. He's a nice guy. I just did it for a joke, that's all.
In an interview for the BBC in to mark Dylan's 60th birthday, Donovan acknowledged Dylan as an influence early in his career while distancing himself from "Dylan clone" allegations:.
The one who really taught us to play and learn all the traditional songs was Martin Carthy — who incidentally was contacted by Dylan when Bob first came to the UK.
Bob was influenced, as all American folk artists are, by the Celtic music of Ireland, Scotland and England. But in we folk Brits were also being influenced by some folk Blues and the American folk-exponents of our Celtic Heritage Dylan appeared after Woody [Guthrie], Pete [Seeger] and Joanie [Baez] had conquered our hearts, and he sounded like a cowboy at first but I knew where he got his stuff — it was Woody at first, then it was Jack Kerouac and the stream-of-consciousness poetry which moved him along.
But when I heard ' Blowin' in the Wind ' it was the clarion call to the new generation — and we artists were encouraged to be as brave in writing our thoughts in music We were not captured by his influence, we were encouraged to mimic him — and remember every British band from the Stones to the Beatles were copying note for note, lick for lick, all the American pop and blues artists — this is the way young artists learn.
There's no shame in mimicking a hero or two — it flexes the creative muscles and tones the quality of our composition and technique.
It was not only Dylan who influenced us — for me he was a spearhead into protest, and we all had a go at his style. I sounded like him for five minutes — others made a career of his sound.
Like troubadours, Bob and I can write about any facet of the human condition. To be compared was natural, but I am not a copyist.
In late , Donovan split with his original management and signed with Ashley Kozak , who was working for Brian Epstein 's NEMS Enterprises.
Kozak introduced Donovan to American businessman Allen Klein later manager of the Rolling Stones and in their final waning months, the Beatles.
Most produced all Donovan's recordings during this period, although Donovan said in his autobiography that some recordings were self-produced, with little input from Most.
Their collaboration produced successful singles and albums, recorded with London session players including Big Jim Sullivan ,  Jack Bruce ,  Danny Thompson ,  and future Led Zeppelin members John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page.
Many of Donovan's late s recordings featured musicians including his key musical collaborator John Cameron on piano, Danny Thompson from Pentangle or Spike Heatley on upright bass, Tony Carr on drums and congas and Harold McNair on saxophone and flute.
Carr's conga style and McNair's flute playing are a feature of many recordings. Cameron, McNair and Carr also accompanied Donovan on several concert tours and can be heard on his live album Donovan in Concert.
He immersed himself in jazz, blues , Eastern music, and the new generation of counterculture -era US West Coast bands such as Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead.
He was entering his most creative phase as a songwriter and recording artist, working with Mickie Most and with arranger, musician, and jazz fan John Cameron.
Their first collaboration was " Sunshine Superman ", one of the first psychedelic pop records. Donovan's rise stalled in December when Billboard broke news of the impending production deal between Klein, Most, and Donovan, and then reported that Donovan was to sign with Epic Records in the US.
Despite Kozak's denials, Pye Records dropped the single and a contract dispute ensued, because Pye had a US licensing arrangement with Warner Bros.
As a result, the UK release of the Sunshine Superman LP was delayed for months, robbing it of the impact it would have had.
Another outcome was that the UK and US versions of this and later albums differed — three of his Epic LPs were not released in the UK, and Sunshine Superman was issued in a different form in each country.
Several tracks on his late s Epic US LPs were not released in the UK for many years. The legal dispute continued into early During the hiatus, Donovan holidayed in Greece , where he wrote "Writer in the Sun",  inspired by rumours that his recording career was over.
He toured the US and appeared on episode 23 of Pete Seeger 's television show Rainbow Quest in with Shawn Phillips and Rev. Gary Davis. After his return to London, he developed his friendship with Paul McCartney and contributed the line "sky of blue and sea of green" to " Yellow Submarine ".
Donovan and Most went to CBS Studios in Los Angeles, where they recorded tracks for an LP, much composed during the preceding year.
Although folk elements were prominent, the album showed increasing influence of jazz, American west coast psychedelia and folk rock — especially the Byrds.
The LP sessions were completed in May, and " Sunshine Superman " was released in the US as a single in June. It was a success, selling , in six weeks and reaching No.
It went on to sell over one million, and was awarded a gold disc. The US version of the Sunshine Superman album is in chamber -style folk-jazz arrangements, and features instruments including acoustic bass, sitar , saxophone, tablas and congas, harpsichord, strings and oboe.
The song is notable for naming the Jefferson Airplane before they became known internationally and before Grace Slick joined.
Other tracks include "Bert's Blues" a tribute to Bert Jansch , "Guinevere", and "Legend of a Girl Child Linda", a track featuring voice, acoustic guitar and a small orchestra for over six minutes.
The album also features the sitar , which was played by American folk-rock singer Shawn Phillips. Donovan met Phillips in London in , and he became a friend and early collaborator, playing acoustic guitar and sitar on recordings including Sunshine Superman as well as accompanying Donovan at concerts and on Pete Seeger's TV show.
Creatively, Phillips served as a silent partner in the gestation of many of Donovan's songs from the era, with the singer later acknowledging that Phillips primarily composed " Season of the Witch ".
The driving, jazzy "The Trip", named after a Los Angeles club name, chronicled an LSD trip during his time in L.
The third "heavy" song was "Season of the Witch". The song was covered by Julie Driscoll , Brian Auger and the Trinity on their first LP in , and Al Kooper and Stephen Stills recorded an minute version on the album, Super Session.
Donovan's version is also in the closing sequence of the Gus Van Sant film, To Die For. Because of earlier contractual problems, the UK version of Sunshine Superman LP was not released for another nine months.
This was a compilation of tracks from the US albums Sunshine Superman and Mellow Yellow. Donovan did not choose the tracks.
On 24 October , Epic released the single " Mellow Yellow ", arranged by John Paul Jones and purportedly featuring Paul McCartney on backing vocals, but not in the chorus.
Through the first half of , Donovan worked on a double-album studio project, which he produced. In January he gave a concert at the Royal Albert Hall accompanied by a ballerina who danced during a minute performance of "Golden Apples".
On 14 January, New Musical Express reported he was to write incidental music for a National Theatre production of As You Like It , but this did not come to fruition.
His version of " Under the Greenwood Tree " did appear on " A Gift from a Flower to a Garden ". In March Epic released the Mellow Yellow LP not released in the UK , which reached No.
Written as an open letter to a school friend, the song had a pacifist message as well as psychedelic imagery. The real "Dippy" was in the British Army in Malaysia.
According to Brian Hogg, who wrote the liner notes for the Donovan boxed set Troubadour , Dippy heard the song, contacted Donovan and left the army.
On 9 February , Donovan was among guests invited by the Beatles to Abbey Road Studios for the orchestral overdub for " A Day in the Life ", the finale to Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In mid, Donovan became the first high-profile British pop star to be arrested for possession of cannabis.
Donovan's arrest proved to be the first in a long series involving the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. According to Donovan, the article was based on an interview by an ex-girlfriend of his friend Gypsy Dave.
It was quickly shown some claims were false. A News of the World reporter claimed to have spent an evening with Mick Jagger , who allegedly discussed his drug use and offered drugs to companions.
He had mistaken Brian Jones for Jagger, and Jagger sued the newspaper for libel. Among other supposed revelations were claims that Donovan and stars including members of the Who , Cream , Rolling Stones and the Moody Blues regularly smoked marijuana, used other drugs, and held parties where the recently banned hallucinogen LSD was used, specifically naming the Who's Pete Townshend and Cream's Ginger Baker.
It emerged later that the News of the World reporters were passing information to the police. In the late s, The Guardian said News of the World reporters had alerted police to the party at Keith Richards 's home, which was raided on 12 February
