Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Matt, I mis-phrased what I meant to say. ND wasn't an egotist in the boastful sense, but (compared to someone like Thompson) he was unable to get past his own perceptions (which in his case were bound up with insecurities). He was all inwardness, which is one reason he's become a poster-boy for the screwed-up.
