Lyn & John

1 Comment

From Lenny, a double dose of sad news today.

Some of you will know Lin Stone – perhaps if only from her appearances in Citizen 63, notably dancing with Marion. Some time later she was very involved in the Polytechnic Entertainment scene and she still lived in Southsea but I gather she passed away this week.

I’ve just returned from a rehearsal with my buddy Denis where we were working on a song by Pentangle among others. Arriving home, I learned from Lenny that John Renbourn – one of the great guitarists – has also died. His wonderful music lives on though

RIP both

PS: If bad news comes in threes, I hope this is the end of it – just found a message from Mick that Buddy Holly’s bass player Joe B Mauldlin, also died this week

One thought on “Lyn & John

  1. Sad news about John Renbourn. I remember a young lady from the Portsmouth art college introduced me to his music and that of Bert Jansch. Open the way for a great love of Acoustic guitar for me including Classical. RIP.
