Incredible musician, performer guitar innovator with an olympian constitution - he'll be missed in our house - I saw him at Cambridge a couple of years ago, my email about it made The Word letters page..

A lovely piece Rob.

Can't remember a time when as many of us came out simultaneously in tribute for someone - enough said.

He was the master. And what great stories of debauchery!!

The story about being nailed under a carpet by Thompson is my favourite Rock 'n' Roll story of all time.

Your Martyn interview (along with Mark Ellen's Humph piece) is the best thing that The Word has published.
