Donovan Honored By Rock Hall Induction

(hennemusic) Scottish folk hero Donovan will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame next year. The singer/songwriter joins Guns N' Roses, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beastie Boys, The Small Faces/The Faces and Laura Nyro in the Class of 2012.

Rolling Stone caught up with Donovan on Wednesday, on vacation in Monaco, to get his thoughts on the Hall Of Fame news.

"It's a singular honor, and I'm pleased as punch, as they say in England and Scotland," began Donovan. "It's even more special because I'm going to be there with some of my favorite artists and musicians. The Faces are my old chums. We used to hang out. The Chilis, some of them appeared on my Rick Rubin album. Guns N' Roses, who I've come to know in California and did a couple of things with. Of course, the Beastie Boys. A very touching part of this, for me, is the inclusion of the lovely Laura Nyro, who left us too soon, of course. When I was younger, I followed her rise and her extraordinary work. It will be great to see her honored too." more on this story
