Nick Drake was born on this day in 1948.
The singer is known for his emotional acoustic songs like “Pink Moon”. The track was featured in a Volkswagen commercial in 1999 that helped bring it to the attention of a new generation.
Drake tragically passed away at the age of 26 from an overdose of approximately 30 amitriptyline pills. This was ruled as a suicide.
