Who is the fuzztone solo guitarist on the original Hurdy Gurdy Man?
On Wiki under Donovan it states a young Alan Holdsworth plays. On Alan Holdsworth's page it states that is a myth and that Alan Parker is the guitarist.

If you ask Page he will tell you he was the guitarist on HGM?

It is Alan Parker. Don't know how the Holdsworth myth took hold, although Donovan himself has aided and abetted the Led-Zeppelin-played-on-it one. (For the record, the drummer was Clem Cattini and the bassist yer actual Zepster John Paul Jones.)
