    News of the Day


    1965: Pye Records announced that they'd signed 'the British Bob Dylan, when they added Donovan to the label. The Scottish singer-songwriter produced a series of hit albums and singles between 1965 and 1970 and became a friend of leading pop musicians including Joan Baez, Brian Jones and and The Beatles. He influenced John Lennon when he taught him a finger-picking guitar style in 1968.

    1967: Rolling Stone's guitarist Keith Richards' England home, known as "Redlands," is raided by 15 policemen who find "various substances of a suspicious nature." Finding "various substances of a suspicious nature," officials arrest Richards and his companions, Stones singer Mick Jagger and his girlfriend, singer Marianne Faithful, on May 10. The arrest sets off a national furor, since it is alleged the raid was orchestrated by the News of the World tabloid for revenge against a Jagger libel suit.

    FYI, I think Donovan is the most underrated musician in rock history. His contributions not only in term of his music but working with other groups in underappreciated. By the way, one day I went through all his hits and there were easily 20 songs that had been in the charts. Not to mention, his founding psychedelic rock.

      Donovan was a pal of the Beatles and was with them when they went to India for their religious pilgrim with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi who was trying to put the moves on Mia Farrow. Johnny was asking about Greatest Hits LPs on another thread he started and I should have mentioned Donovan's greatest hits. That is a freaking awesome LP with great songs and sound quality.

        Yup was influential with Sgt Pepper and had tremendous input into The White Album.

        His unique work continues to influence new bands and singers. That’s quite a breadth of accomplishment. But then breadth was what he always did best. His album Sunshine Superman (1965/1966) introduced Flower Power to the world and influenced his friends The Beatles to create their 1967 album Sgt. Pepper, and he contributed lyrics to their songs. He taught John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison to finger pick the guitar on their famous trip to India to study Transcendental Meditation. George Harrison later said of their friend, “Donovan is all over The White Album“.
