Question relating to the photo you can see here.
I scanned in a photo from a double CD collection I have of Donovan’s songs (Troubadour - I have the “long box with the picture booklet” mentioned in the Wikipedia article). In the photo, you can see Scottish singer Donovan, three of the Beatles (John, Paul and George), Mia Farrow, and the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. I am assuming this picture was taken during the 1968 visit of the Beatles to India.
You might not be able to tell, but there was someone in the photo, between Donovan and Mia Farrow, and that person has been airbrushed out. I know this for sure because I saw the same photo in a magazine once and there was a person there. The unretouched photo was in Time or Newsweek between approximately 10 and 5 years ago. I saved the magazine, but my wife later threw it away by mistake.
Has anyone seen an unretouched version of the photo? If you can find a copy online that would be great.
Who is the missing person, and why would they be airbrushed out? Maybe someone that Donovan didn’t like?
From what I remember of the picture I saw in Time or Newsweek, the person was a man, thin, blond, had a small beard (maybe a goatee). But my memory could be faulty.
