Thread Name: Obit: RIP Bert Jansch (1943-2011)
Subject: RE: Obit: RIP Bert Jansch. 4 October 2011
Of course, with Bert, for me, I was buying in to more than just the music back in the mid-60s.
I was also buying in to an alternative bohemian life-style.
I remember reading that Bert and John Renborn were sharing a flat, and I imagined them sitting around all day creating the sort of music that appeared on the album "John and Bert".
That image might not have been entirely true. I think Bert - or John - has said they spent more time back then sitting around smoking pot than playing guitars!
