Thread Name: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Something which hasn't been mentioned is that his sister, the well known actress Gabrielle Drake, has often talked about her brother's music and his life. This in itself might have helped keep him in the media's consciousness. That's not to say it was done cynically or that his music doesn't warrant such attention (I don't know it well enough to judge) but it's possibly a contributory factor in how a legend is formed.
