A to Z

A piece by Johnny Marr for Bert Jansch

Recorded in Manchester
September 2018

Johnny says:“I am honoured to send off this guitar in Bert’s name. He was an inspiration and a great man. I wanted to do something personal, so I’ve played a guitar song of mine called ‘A to Z’ as it was something Bert and I used to play together for fun. I always think of him when I play it. and he will always be an inspiration not only as a musician but as a man. Bert was very dear to me. He actually made the term ‘cool’ mean something. He would’ve loved the idea of this guitar making a journey – Godspeed.”

You can see Johnny and Bert playing ‘It Don’t Bother Me’ together at Bert’s 60th Birthday concert in October 2003 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psPjagYvwgA
