 Donovan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Donovan's early musical style and appearance led to him being perceived and promoted as a British version of Bob Dylan (United States songwriter noted for his protest songs (born in 1941)) and this brought with it a certain degree of criticism from folk purists, who wrongly assumed him to be a simple Dylan imitator.
Donovan became the first high-profile British pop star to be arrested for possession of marijuana (A strong-smelling plant from whose dried leaves a number of euphoriant and hallucinogenic drugs are prepared), which evidently occurred some time in late 1966.
Donovan had also considered giving it to Jimi Hendrix (United States guitarist whose innovative style with electric guitars influenced the development of rock music (1942-1970)), but when Mickie Most heard it, he convinced Donovan that the song was a sure-fire single and that he should record it himself.

Donovan himself put out his first new album in eight years in 1991, a recording of vintage live performances called Donovan Rising in the U.K. and The Classics Live in the U.S. In 1992, he was given the boxed set treatment, with Sony Music's Legacy division issuing the two-CD/cassette retrospective Troubadour: The Definite Collection/1964-1976.
Donovan had also taken up playing the guitar, and he spent a couple of years in the early '60s roaming the countryside, working odd jobs and developing his musical ability, frequently in the company of a friend named “Gypsy Dave” who would prove to be a long-time companion.
Donovan's five-year contract of 1966 was due to expire at the end of 1970, though, by the label's reckoning, he had failed to deliver all the albums called for by the contract.
