JOHN MARTYN

Like so many others, I'm sad to learn of the death of John Martyn, a unique, unreliable, creative hothead who was blessed with a marvellous voice, made rich and expressive by life's torments, and who wrote songs that spoke straight to the hearts of many while beguiling with their mystery and brooding inventiveness. He died of double pneumonia in a hospital bed in Ireland. Hope he had a hand to hold.

Sad indeed. Perhaps you could add a belated note about the death in December 2008 of Davy Graham who had a profound influence on many guitarists in the 60's.
