Nick Drake, Tim Buckley, Clifford T Ward, Elliott Smith, Jeff Buckley...
Sensitive male singer songwriters who died too young. John Martyn outlived them all but 60 is still too bloody young to go. I only got into John a few years ago but I love his albums to bits. He'd just been made an OBE along with hundreds of other people who have never been geniuses.
The UK is very strange.
