Nick Drake

117 views

Nick Drake was an English Singer-Songwriter born in 1948 mostly known for his acoustic guitar-based songs he was reluctant to preform live or give interviews but It´s baffling to me that he failed to find a wide audience during his lifetime.  Drake suffered from Depression which is clearly reflected in his lyrics and died at the age of 26 at his parante home in  Tanworth in arden, Warwickshire, England from an overdose of approximately 30 amitriptyline pills (an antidepressant.) His cause of death was determined as sucide. Depression is no joke :-( . I highly recommend Nick Drakes masterpiece Pink Moon from 1972 it´s very dreamy and beautiful. Does anyone else like him here? what is your favorite drake song?

" Don't be shy you learn to fly
And see the sun when day is done
If only you see
Just what you are beneath a star
That came to stay one rainy day
In autumn for free
Yes, be what you'll be. "
(Things Behind The Sun)

Thank you for sharing. :tu:

Hmmm you have to remember that some people don't want to be famous.

I never want to be famous, you lose your freedom when you are famous. (That's also why I write many different names on my art)

Maybe Nick Drake was the same way?!

I don't know what was going on inside his mind, but I do know that many true artists don't create to become famous, they create because they need to express something.

Exactly!!! that is why you start to play in the first place :-)  however most people want to make a living out of their music to be able to live on their artistic creativity otherwise they would do something else.  so there´s a fine balance , today it´s sadly mostly about fame. :-(
