Congratulations to Sir Terence Pratchett, or SurPterry as we shall undoubtedly come to call him (although I'm tempted to doubt it as he is the last bloke I think would ever be lost for words). But overlooked in the reports is this guy, who gets an OBE:
He's John Martyn, BTW.
Born January 1, 1614
I spent about twenty years working in the music business in various different capacities, during that time I worked on, was involved in, promoted and attended a vast number of live concerts. In my memories I have a comparatively short list of those concerts that were truly transcendental and extraordinary, one of those was John Martin live at Cardiff Students Union in 1975: Awesome simply Awesome!
