Some People Are Crazy - The John Martyn Story

£20.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

John Martyn is one of rock music's last real mavericks. Despite chronic addiction to alcohol and drugs, he produced a string of matchless albums. Loved by fans and critics, loathed by ex-wives and managers, he has survived the music business he despises for forty years. With contributions by Martyn, many of his lovers and over twenty musicians who know him well, this book documents his upbringing in Glasgow and rise through the Scottish and London folk scene of the 1960s. The book documents his many highs and lows, and his friendships with the great lost souls of British rock music - Nick Drake and Paul Koshoff.

Bumps to corners but generally in good condition.
