I'm greatly entertained by Eric Idle's article.
I recently read Contested Will and a biography of John Martyn in succession. This might have been a bad move as it has made me come up with a singularly stupid idea.
Since the facts of Martyn's personal life are so obviously inconsistent with the music he created, it is clear to me now that the songs were all written by somebody else. Probably Nick Drake, who was a much more gentle chap & went to Cambridge (that he died 30 years before Martyn's career ended is no barrier to him writing all the songs). Danny Thompson's comment "someone who can write 'you curl around me like a fern in the spring' - that's the man that is going to be missed, not the guy who is chucking beer all over you and poking you in the chest" makes it unambiguously clear that the person who wrote the song is an entirely different person from the performer.

The Facebook thing makes no sense to me at all.

    UK mailboxes aren't waterproof?! That seems like an odd design.

    That would make things less awkward.
