Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
For what it's worth I like a lot of ND's work.
It's unfortunate that he died so young and we will never know what direction his music would have taken as he matured.
What has been done since his death, in terms of re-mixing and re-issuing is hardly his fault; he's not responsible for all the hype.
He was a shy, reluctant performer, (possibly part of the problems that killed him), but he wrote and recorded his music for what it was.
If you don't happen to like him then that's fine, everyone's disliked by someone, but some of the above comments are mean-spirited, cruel and un-necessary.
