One Dark Night

One dark rainy night outside The Tron Theatre in Glasgow after spending the last of my money on tickets for both nights of the John Martyn tour, I was waiting outside with a couple of mates trying to snag a photo of the great man. He pulled up and jumped out of the car. I shouted “Any chance of a picture Big Man?” As clear as a bell and very loudly he shouted “Naw fuck off.” Very sheepishly I turned to round to my friends expecting a severe slagging, but all they could say was “You lucky bastard, John Martyn told you to fuck off!!!”
