Blinded by the sun

Nick Drake with "Things behind the Sun", off of his album Pink Moon. He walked into the studio at midnight with his guitar, started playing and singing into a microphone, and walked out 4 hours later with an album in the can, and walked into depression, insanity, and, finally, death. Some things just shouldn't be seen if you wish to remain sane...

  1. I like music time but I have to come back to it.. The rest of the clan is asleep...shhhh

  2. Ah, but the past two days have been quiet days. Not on purpose, mind you, I'm just following the musical threads where they lead, and they led to Nick Drake today...

  3. Drake died much too young, but that just might have been an act of kindness on the part of some divine presence. You never really know. Drake wrote the kind of songs you write when your spirit is in deep pain...
