Présentation de l'éditeur

Described recently by Empire magazine as 'Britain's best ever blues singer', John Martyn was one of rock music's last real mavericks. Despite long-term addiction to alcohol and drugs, which contributed to his death in January 2009, he produced a string of matchless albums. Loved by fans and critics, loathed by ex-managers, he survived the music business he despised for 40 years. With contributions by Martyn, many of his lovers and over 20 musicians who knew him well, this book documents his upbringing in Glasgow and rise through the Scottish and London folk scene of the 1960s, his many highs and lows, and his friendships with the great lost souls of British rock music - Nick Drake and Paul Kossoff.

John,
You were so good to me when I was a pup just cuising thru southern england in 1977, I had the good fortune to meet, play with on stage in heathfield, babysat his kids and had him come in drunk at one a.m. and an old john wayne movie was on the telly. He said he'd been out dancing and had the fifth sticking out his vest pocket-"I always wanted to write a song about John Wayne", he gushes,"and serndipity, what is that? I like the way it sounds! Are the kids okay? Beverly's not coming back, ya know"
...years later, I was in Santa Fe and saw the new one by John, what was it? 1989. a cassette called my attention off the racks and I turned it over and both those songs were on it. Back in the states, I've stayed in touch with John and followed every albumn and there's not a more gifted, kind-hearted soul out there!
Buy the book. Put him in the Hall of Fame, forgive him, but ya got a love him!

HASH(0x8e9f7264) étoiles sur 5 He really isn't all that nice to a lot of people 8 avril 2011
Par Reginald Ollen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I kind of wish John Martyn hadn't been such a prick. If you have a super warm spot in your heart for the man you might want to stick to the music. If this was written while he was alive, imagine what was left out to protect him! To his credit John Martyn admits to most of his foibles (Evil is a better word) and there is an awful lot of funny anecdotes. The book is a little disorganized as a narrative but it pays back with terrific quotes and research, I mean the author tracked down all sorts of folks who won't be with us much longer, many of whom played on a single track. I do wish the pictures didn't jump from 1974 to 1999. I'm fond of the bleary 1980's albums and his crazed but suave look during those Phil Collins years. The trip-hop connection comes up quite a bit, Brits think it was a super seismic movement in music, but honestly, who will remember trip hop in five years? The ageless sound of early 70's John Martyn is really the story told well here. Every time I've played Solid Air for some one for the first time I always ask what year it's from. No one ever knows and there is always stunned silence when they find out how old it really is. And no one has sounded like him since.

HASH(0x8eb39f90) étoiles sur 5 ...and I mean REALLY crazy! 6 juin 2011
Par D.V.O. - Publié sur Amazon.com

While I'd been a big John Martyn fan since discovering him in the early 80's, there had always been a dearth of information about him in the U.S. As his output became more sporadic and uneven, I lost touch with his career, even while still listening to the earlier recordings of his best days. The news of his passing took me by surprise, even though the content of much of his writing hinted at a certain darkness at work in his life. "Some People Are Crazy" does a wonderful job of filling in the blanks in the story of a supremely gifted, deeply flawed artist. It's a painful read for those of us who were unaware of John's capacity for self-destruction and wanton cruelty to those around him. However, the book speaks also of the ebullience of his personality and the singular genius of his music. It would be hard to write a more balanced book about such a polarizing figure. An outstanding piece of work!

HASH(0x8e8d29a8) étoiles sur 5 Martyn Deserves Better 21 juillet 2012
Par James M. Shertzer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Though he achieved a good bit of fame (and notoriety) throughout the British Isles, John Martyn remains a cult figure elsewhere. Always hard to pin down, this hard-living musician roved from folk to rock to jazz to the blues over a career that spanned four decades and was tragically cut short by his death at age 60. His guitar techniques (and use to Echoplex) and burnished, jazzy vocals were only a few of the tricks John had up his sleeve - he was also a fine composer - but his music never caught on in the states, despite endorsements and support from the likes of Eric Clapton and Phil Collins. Regrettably, if you're a fan of Martyn's music, you'll find little here that you didn't always know. This isn't exactly a "scissors-and-paste" job, but it quotes news and magazine articles extensively and is short on fresh interviews.

What a fantastic book, I could not put it down. A real insight into the life of the big man. A must for all John Martyn fans. It relates his whole life in music and words, what an excellent poet and romantic he was as well as a very crazy man.He will be sadly missed.
