This seat is to be admired at Carroll's Bar in Thomastown, Kilkenny. Pub owner Bill Carroll had it especially made for John. Imagine that you're a huge fan and you discover your hero is coming to live in your home town..
Apparently John's comment was 'That will do nicely', according to the the sign which continues 'Thank You | John Martyn | Musician, Singer, Songwriter'.
I took this picture during the first John Martyn Tribute Festival, Saturday 10 September 2011.
