RIP John Martyn

John Martyn was a very good friend of Nick Drake's, who didn't die young. But yet, the world has lost his beautiful voice. I must confess that I love his music. I must also confess that this allows me to put off posting something substantial about the total mess we're in now. Everybody altogether "Torture B A D." "Healthcare G O O D." Thank you. As a reward, the following clip. PS. Don't be lulled by this beautiful song--layers upon layers of complexity with just a guitar and a voice.

One more, to make no mistake (hee hee.)

I guess I'm at that age where all my favorites are dropping like ever-so-musical two winged creatures. Makes me worry. But still, such beauty.
