Cultural Zeitgeist

Donovan’s 70th Birthday Beat Cafe at the London Palladium.

What to say, well his voice is a bit reedy now, but he played all the songs you would want him to play, so all in all pretty good.

More interestingly he had quite the biggest ego of anyone I think I have ever seen and there was some quite heroic name dropping – Jimmy Page, George Harrison, Keith Moon, Roger Daltry, The Walker Brothers, Graham Nash, Peter Noone and Billy Fury.

Not the best name dropping ever, that was Germaine Greer, who I once heard start a story on TV with the words “I was in bed with Jimi Hendrix”
