John Martyn RIP

So soon after Davy Graham's passing just a few weeks ago, it is with great regret and a tear that I heard of John Martyn's death on my way home from work this evening. Although I never saw him play live, he was and remains responsible for some of my favorite music. Like Graham, I found his interviews and lifestory intimidating, a bear of a man with very human failings and a wilful streak a mile wide. Again I'm just posting the first thing I heard him play on the radio - but this really was just the start point, he was 18 and had many more amazing albums ahead of him.
