Default John Martyn Passes On

One of my all time favorite singer/songwriters, Solid Air is one the best chill out albums you can listen too.

Default Re: John Martyn Passes On

I read the news yesterday and was surprised and then a tinge of sadness overtook me. Whilst I can't pretend to have listened to much of John Martyn's work, I can relate to the innovation and sincerity of his work; despite being blighted with difficulties for a large proportion of his life. Long may his legacy as an innovator and composer endure.

Well Said. There was an element of that sadness in many of his songs.
