Nick Drake 60

Today it's 60 years since Nick Drake (1948-1974) was born. We celebrate him with one original (“Way to blue”), two cover versions with Brad Mehldau (“River Man” two parts) and Norwegian band Minor Majority (“Three Hours”) and finally *cough* a commercial for VW (“Pink Moon”). Read Nick Drake's story in Patrick Humphries' biography from 1997.
