Donovan Appears On American TV For The First Time
September 30,1965, Donovan made his US television debut on Shindig. I don’t remember seeing Donovan on Shindig but I did have the honor of meeting him backstage at The Royal Oak Music Theater in 1986. I was really struck by what a friendly and humble guy he was considering his rock icon status. He let me take a close look at his very cool guitar with inlayed stars. Donovan even gave me his home address in Twenty Nine Palms, California. The man is the real thing.
