The singer says that he's honoured to be inducted
Speaking to Rolling Stone the singer songwriter said "It's a singular honour, and I'm pleased as punch, as they say in England and Scotland.
"It's even more special because I'm going to be there with some of my favorite artists and musicians," he added. "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."
Donovan was yesterday confirmed as an inductee to the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, with the ceremony to take place in April next year.
