Nick Drake

Nick DrakeA few months ago, I discovered the music of Nick Drake (1948-1974). He produced only three albums, but they are rare gems.

With 7,500 songs on my iPod, I can’t stop listening to his work. I’ll even pick one of his songs and have it loop five or six times. I never do that. I’m always on shuffle mode. But when Nick Drake pops up, he never fails — I’ll find myself listening to him until the batteries die.

If you care to learn more about Nick Drake, RollingStone and VH1 have two good biographies. If you want to learn even more, just search for him, for he has a lot of fans who are even more captivated than I.
