When I was little my dad used to rave about Nick Drake, and being a 7 year old I despised him.
I obviously preferred listening to S Club 7.
We even visited his grave (it happened to be near a friends house)
Only now as I grow up I've started to appreciate how he was one the best song writers ever to lived. And of course as the fate of any good musician he died at only 26 of an overdose.
