Nick Drake - And Now We Rise

Written by
nick drake simon bond  zani 11 2.

One morning late in 1974, twenty-six year old singer-songwriter Nick Drake failed to stir. His mother was the first to find him, upstairs in the bedroom of their home in the chocolate-box environs of rural Warwickshire. On his bed Nick lay motionless; his troubled features finally at peace. The depression that had wracked his brain with demons for the last few years had finally claimed him, aided by an overdose of tranquillisers. There was no suicide note.

In February 2009  I read a feature in Vibe Magazine about J Dilla's legacy. The timing was poignant, coming just before the third anniversary of his death (on 10 February). It was a sad reminder of the loss of an enigmatic artist who had spent his life avoiding music industry politics.
