Recent events in Glasgow brought memories of seeing John in 2006 at the ABC. Great gig and sweet memories for sure. This website serves as a fine tribute to greatly missed genius. RIP Big Man.

Lovely to read the comments in the guestbook from so many the big man has touched. Hope to visit the JM Gathering at Hackforth this June 22-24th to hear some of his songs again.

Thank you for this good feeling, feeling like home, an home that I never had, every time I'm listening to your music, you voice, your words. Your music makes me feel home. Especially when I'm listening to London conversation. I know, it's an olde one. It helps me to feel grounded, alive and ready to continue.

Having followed Johns music since Solid Air and seen him play multiple times, some more together than others! I was standing on Waverley Station Edinburgh when I realised that the big guy standing near me was my musical hero, I don't usually bother people but I found myself offering a handshake and muttering something about how influential his work had been for me. He looked very uncomfortable and turned away as quickly as possible whilst his partner Teresa politely waved me away. Still a good memory for me to this day.

Love the expanded discography … now I know I'll never have a complete collection! Pride of place in my collection is the Piece by Piece promo box. Had that for maybe 20 years, bought at the former Wall of Sound in Halifax's Piece Hall.

John Martyn was amazing and a major influence on me as a musician.All that aside,I'd like to share my one real personal memory of him here.Around 1979 (as I later found out in a book)John was living in Moscow, Ayrshire near Glasgow in order to look after his aged dad. I was trying to earn a few bob by doing a bit of tree-felling work in the area, and one particular night I had to decide whether to keep cutting trees or go home-having only a gallon of petrol-which I could either put in my chainsaw or in my old Triumph 1500 car. I thought I'd chance it and put the juice in the chainsaw and kept working until dark. On starting my car, it sputtered to a halt after a short distance.I saw a light in the woods and walked towards it,thinking it was a farm and maybe I could buy or scrounge some petrol there.A familiar looking bearded guy answered the door;behind him I could see a line of guitars on stands and I think a piano.I inanely asked him if he was a musician and then feebly added that I played a bit myself.Anyway I told him my hard luck story and he gave me enough petrol to get me home.Only years later did I find out that JM was living there at the time.I also shared a flat with an ex-classmate of his;all this without realising that he was the good Samaritan on that dark night in the forest.Further to this I was living near him in Kilkenny until he died. I always wanted to meet and thank him but you know how it goes;it did't happen. Thanks for every thing John

can anybody explain? I'm 57 and only heard john's music after he'd passed away - and I thought I heard a lot. but since then his music would be with the top 5 of what I would take to the island far away. it makes me sing - and cry. _ I can listen to john on and on and on _

Solid Air has been with me since 1973. Probably listen to it every other day.
Remember seeing John 1978 I think at Sussex Uni. Absolutely electric performance.
A great artist.
