I am baffled as to how the brilliant Martin Stephenson has slipped through my net until now. He is the warmest and most sincere man you could ever meet and this pervades through his live set, Full of ad-libs and dazzling guitar improvisations, he is endlessly funny and moving all at the same time. His story of how he pulled through alcholism was very affecting to me. He seems full of light and compassion, not a trace of bitterness. We found we had a mutual friend in the late great Jackie Leven. Martin came up to me after my set and said that was like 1978, it had all the passion of that era, that's rare these days.. a great compliment indeed from a great man..
