A Legendary Music Talent Leaves This Plane… Mourned by His Peers.






I was struck by John Martyn’s music when I saw him in concert at a student union concert in Oxford in 1977.

His voice, style, technique, were unique; as many of his fans amongst them Clapton and Collins would testify. He was a Musician’s Musician. 

According to BBC News:

“The folk, blues and funk artist was widely regarded as one of the most soulful and innovative singer-songwriters of his generation.

He was born in Surrey but grew up in Glasgow. He was appointed an OBE in the New Year Honours.

A statement on his website on Thursday said: “With heavy heart and an unbearable sense of loss we must announce that John died this morning.”

The musican, who passed away in hospital in Ireland, has been cited as an influence by artists as varied as U2, Portishead and Eric Clapton.


  He was unique and we’ll never see the likes of him again. I loved him dearly and will miss him very much  Phil Collins

He was regarded as a maverick within the music industry and battled with drugs and alcohol throughout his life.

He collaborated with many musicians throughout his life, including Phil Collins, and his song May You Never was covered by many artists – including Clapton.


Phil Collins paid tribute to his  friend


He said: “John’s passing is terribly, terribly sad. I had worked with and known him since the late 1970s and he was a great friend.

“He was uncompromising, which made him infuriating to some people, but he was unique and we’ll never see the likes of him again.

“I loved him dearly and will miss him very much.” 


Listen to this song and be touched…
