Out On Blue Six : John Renbourn, RIP

Really sad news - John Renbourn, guitarist, songwriter and founder of Pentangle has sadly passed away at the age of 70.

A legend of the folk music world, Renbourn developed a distinctive guitar playing style with three fingers on the right and a thumb, with filed down pieces of ping pong balls as artificial nails.

Tragically, he was found dead at his home yesterday from a suspected heart attack after he failed to attend a gig in Glasgow on Wednesday evening.
