*** Donovan (born Donovan Philips Leitch, 1946) is a Scottish singer, songwriter and guitarist. Initially labelled an imitator of Bob Dylan, he developed an eclectic and distinctive style that blended folk, jazz, pop, psychedelia, and world music (notably calypso). His most successful singles in the 1960's included the early UK hits "Catch the Wind", "Colours" and "The Universal Soldier" in 1965, while "Sunshine Superman" and "Mellow Yellow" hit the U.S. charts along with "Hurdy Gurdy Man". He became a friend of leading pop musicians including Joan Baez, Brian Jones, and The Beatles. - He continued to perform and record sporadically in the 1970's and 1980's.
Donovan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
