Sadly as Walsall Manor is my local hospital, I can't blame them from keeping a wide berth.

Don't fancy popping in with some grapes to see how he is, do you?

Discussion in The Observer this morning about Beverley Martyn's (John's first wife) attempts to sell some unreleased tapes of Nick Drake. She's doing this becuase she is "in poor health" and hasn't made any serious money from the albums she did with John Martyn over 40 years ago, or her solo stuff.
