RIP John Martyn

I just heard the news. A real character and a peerless musician and writer. What a loss.

Here's his last interview, at Word Magazine.

I saw him with Paul Kossoff in Leeds in 1975, when I was a real Kossoff fan and could care less about John Martyn. I was a kid then.

The stories I heard about that gig since! And they're not even the weirdest tales in the Martyn biography. He was legendary.
