Singer John Martyn dies at 60.

Phil Collins has paid tribute to folk and blues artist John Martyn following his death at the age of 60.

The singer/songwriter, who was made an OBE in the new year honours, collaborated with artists including Collins and also Eric Clapton.

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