Nick Drake: The Biography by Patrick Humphries

Singer/songwriter Nick Drake was only 26 and largely unknown when he died of a drug overdose in 1974. With only three albums -- and nary a hit among them -- he hardly seemed the most likely candidate for rock 'n' roll canonization. But Drake's reputation has been steadily on the rise in the nearly quarter of a century since his death. Each ensuing generation of fans and artists, it seems, discovers him anew: His songs have been covered by the likes of Lucinda Williams, the High Llamas, Airlines, and Sebadoh. Now Patrick Humphries, author of Richard Thompson:The Biography and Small Change: A Life Of Tom Waits, attempts to satisfy the curiosity of the ever-expanding Drake cult with a biographical look at the star-crossed artist, Nick Drake: The Biography.
