Rest in Peace, John Martyn, Talented Singer-Songwriter and Guitarist
I was saddened to learn via another boomer music fan that British musician and songwriter John Martyn had passed away on January 29, 2009 at the age of 60.
He was one of these voices that found a home on Island Records in the 70's and 80's with albums like Solid Air or the emotionally charged Grace and Danger.
The video of May You Never (1973) shows his bluesy side.
Will Hodgkinson offers his tribute in John Martyn: A music legend remembered (Guardian, Music Blog, January 29).
