Subject: RE: Nick Drake - hype and reality
It's highly improbable - he probably got lots - right looks, right place, right time, "sensitive", and a more than accomplished guitarist.
I don't like his stuff, and find it slushy (hey, that never hurt with persons of gender) but there can be no doubt that he was very very good as a guitarist.
And while the Nic Jones "thump" can be great when he is in the same time signature vocally and on the guitar, when he crosses the rhythms it becomes infuriating.
