Nick Drake died in 1974 of a drug overdose but has continued to influence music. The 1985 hit "Life in a Northern Town" by Dream Academy is based on Drake's life. There was also a 1998 documentary about him called "A Stranger Among Us." Curiously, and possibly due to his intense shyness, there is no know video footage of Nick Drake performing, nor any video of him as an adult.
