Sad, sad loss. What could he have been if he'd laid off the tabs?
Listening to Albatros as I write this - hasn't aged one second.
Heard him play Oh Well live on Peel on R1 years ago - absolutely beautiful (inclding an extended 'bridge' while he replaced a broken string!). The bit at the end of the first side of the single version where everything stops and you just hear a single note echoing in reply is just heart-stopping.
