Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
Jansch frequently slurred his words, and likewise Graham. Likewise a whole lot of 60s folksong singers, many of whom were pissed/spaced a lot of the time.
The point about Drake's class is that people portray him as the suffering indigent aesthete. All he had to do to be rich and comfortable was to go home. He was not even trapped in the aspirational spiral of the middle classes.
