Donovan was born Donovan Philips Leitch in Scotland as part of the post-war baby-boom in 1946. On April 14 2012 he took his rightful place among his peers when he was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, who announced that "Donovan single-handedly initiated the Psychedelic Revolution with his album Sunshine Superman". This album also announced flower power and meditation, a whole year before The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Donovan continued to influence The Beatles on The White Album, teaching John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison, his finger-style guitar and unique chord structures, inspiring Dear Prudence, Blackbird and While My Guitar Gently Weeps, to name just a few. "Donovan is all over The White Album" George Harrison. He is a legendary folk-rock-pop poet who remains an important part of popular culture since his career began in 1965. He truly is one of the pre-eminent members of British rock royalty, and the creator of many innovative recording techniques and pioneering musical fusions which influenced the styles of so many artists worldwide.

In the tradition of The Kinks and the Small Faces and around the same time as Ian Dury and Squeeze, Chas and Dave wrote and recorded exceptionally witty songs about life in London, performed with a strong affection for all things English and reminiscent of many of the great Music Hall artists many years previously.
In their case however, the musical accompaniment to their sharply observant material was neither rock nor punk but solid, no-nonsense rock n roll style which had been their background and inspiration!
Chas and Dave disbanded in 2009 following the retirement of Dave Peacock after his wife's death. However, In 2010 the boys announced their return to the live circuit due to huge public support.
