Promotional Information

The autobiography of the Prince of Flower Power. Alongside the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan, Donovan's music defined a generation.

About the Author

Born in Glasgow in 1946, Donovan Leitch is recognised as one of the most influential musicians to have emerged from the twentieth century. During the height of his career in the 1960's he wrote some of that generation's most memorable songs, with nine top ten records including Catch the Wind and Mellow Yellow. He is widely recognised as a founder of 'Flower Power' and travelled to India with The Beatles to meditate under the guidance of the Maharishi. He currently lives in Ireland with his wife Linda and continues to write poetry and music.

Reviews

Anyone who lived through that time, or anyone curious to know what the 'magic' or theswinging 60s where about, will enjoy this trip through 'histories of ages past' with the original Hurdy Gurdy Man. * The Guardian *
Entertaining and indisputably personal account * MOJO *
Three cheers for the Hurdy Gurdy man for approaching his autobiography as a serious book rather than a quick cash-in or headline grabbing confessional...a pleasing trip back to a time, not so long ago, when every gentle heart believed peace was a real possibility * The Telegraph *
An unqualified delight * The Observer *
Touching, illuminating and frank * The New York Times *
