I have met Martin several times and consider him a friend. When he saw me after the concert, he came over and gave me a bear hug. It was good to see him again. It struck me, however, how different we are; I am a religious educator, and he’s a rock artist in a truest sense of the word…. although a very sympathetic, compassionate rock artist. He’s got a good heart. And he cares for his fans, constantly showing them gratitude, whether on or off stage. I wish him all the best on his new tour.
