Donovan Phillips Leitch Wiki Biography

Donovan Phillips Leitch was born on the 10th May 1946, in Maryhill, Glasgow, Scotland, and is a singer, songwriter, poet and guitarist, who emerged in the middle of the 1960s as a folk singer, which earned him the nickname of the British Bob Dylan, but he soon became one of the greatest representatives of the psychedelic era in the late 1960s. Donovan has been active in the entertainment industry since 1964.

How much is the net worth of Donovan? It has been calculated by authoritative sources that the outright size of his wealth is as much as $10 million, as of the data presented in the middle of 2017. Music is the main source of Donovan’s fortune.

To begin with, the boy was raised in Maryhill by his mother, Winifred and his father, Donald Leitch. The family moved to Hertfordshire, England, where he learned to play the guitar at the age of fourteen. Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Ramblin ‘Jack Elliott are among the influences that nourished his musical culture. Donovan became friends with many musicians such as Derroll Adams, who has had a great influence on him too, and whose quotes and other references in music are common in his songs. Donovan owes him his first appearance, in 1965, on the TV show “Ready, Steady, Go” that made him known to the general public.

After this performance, his first single “Catch the Wind” (1965) was released, which soon appeared in the top five in the UK charts. His second single “Colors” (1965) was also a hit, followed by a Buffy Sainte Marie cover “Universal Soldier” (1965). Afterwards, Donovan went on tour in the USA, where among other events he appeared at the Newport Folk Festival. In 1966, Donovan signed to Epic Records, where his breakthrough LP was recorded entitled “Sunshine Superman”. The psychedelic album, in which he used exotic instruments such as the sitar and the conga, became a hit on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The single “Mellow Yellow” (1967) was a huge hit and became the song for which Donovan was later identified, and the same year he produced the double album “A Gift from a Flower to a Garden”.

Donovan travelled to India to study with the Indian guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi – around that time, he was averse to hard drugs. In 1968, he released “The Hurdy Gurdy Man”, an album with psychedelic and powerful songs, including the title track and the hit “Jennifer Juniper”. In 1969 the album “Barabajagal” was released, featuring the hit “Atlantis” – the Jeff Beck Group played the title track.

In the early 1970s, Donovan withdrew from public life, until in 1972 he returned in the film “The Pied Piper”. His album “Essence to Essence” (1973) was received pretty badly, as well as his few following albums. After “Lady of the Stars” (1984) he seemed to have stopped recording, only in 1996 he came back with the album “Sutras” produced by Rick Rubin. In 2004, came “Beat Café” produced by John Chelew and assisted by bassist Danny Thompson and drummer Jim Keltner, but he has never been able to recreate the success he had in the ‘60s and ‘70s.

Finally, in the personal life of Donovan, he has been married to Linda Lawrence since 1970, the ex-wife of Rolling Stone Brian Jones. He is the step-parent and adoptive father of their son Julian Brian Jones. He has two children with Linda, and two children with his ex-wife Enid Stulberger, Donovan Leitch Jr. and Ione Skye, who both are actors.

Donovan Phillips Leitch Quotes

  • [on the use of his song “Atlantis” in Goodfellas (1990)] There was a point when I decided I’d like my music to be used in ads and movies so that more people would be exposed to it. Scorsese [Martin Scorsese] wanted to use that song and I gave permission. It’s Scorsese, right? It’s bound to be a great scene. When I first saw it, I was slightly horrified. It’s such a peaceful song and here’s Joe Pesci beating this poor guy to death. Then I decided that I liked the juxtaposition of it.
  • Bob [Bob Dylan] and myself came from the same bohemian background in different parts of the world. We arrived on the scene together. He came a little earlier, which is why some people assume I copied him. I don’t believe I did.
  • [1966] As I get better known, I’d like to try and make my songs a kind of force for a better world. There are so many things wrong on the earth, and I want to try and right those wrongs.
