Not sure how many people have heard of Nick Drake, but although he never made it past 26 he left us with some truly great work.
I was listening to his album Five Leaves Left tonight and started wondering how many other great talents people may have missed because they left us prematurely.
Many of us may not have heard of these people because they passed on before great success, so let’s see what we can do about sharing the knowledge and our appreciation of them.
The only criteria that I’d suggest are that:
- the performer left the stage before turning 30; and
- some attempt is made to describe the style of their music.
In Nick Drake's case, he produced some awesome music in an acoustic guitar-based folk style.
