Death of guitarist Bert Jansch

Anyone that listens to Jimmy Page, Neil Young and a host of other guitar players should take a second to say farewell to a man that inspired them.

Jansch was born in Glasgow, Scotland 1943 and by the mid 60s was having a huge influence not just in folk music but also with rock. Jimmy Page described him at the time as "the innovator of the time … so far ahead of what anyone else was doing". Obit here:

I saw him at a gig in Edinburgh in August last year. He looked well after a bout of cancer but sadly it came back just recently.
