Are You A Christian?

Lancaster University, England, 22 November 1978

Shout from the audience, “Are you a Christian?”

John Martyn, “I came here to enjoy myself!” [gives a fine performance of Over The Hill]

Another shout from the audience, “‘Go Down Easy’!”

John, “Yeah, I heard some bloke playing Go Down Easy the other day, he played it better than I did!”

Uncertain laughter from the audience

“F***in’ c***, I wanted to cut his f***in’ hands off!”

Roars of laughter
