* TheMuse: Drake is cited as an influence by a truly staggering number of musicians, when you consider how small his fanbase was when he was alive. Robert Smith of Music/TheCure, Damon Gough (AKA Badly Drawn Boy), BethOrton, and Peter Buck of {{REM}} are probably the most famous. BradPitt is a fan, and narrated the documentary ''Lost Boy: In Search of Nick Drake'' for Creator/{{BBC}} Radio 2. "Solid Air" by John Martyn and "Life In A Northern Town" by The Dream Academy were written as tributes to him.

* WordOfSaintPaul: {{Averted}} in the case of his sister, Gabrielle. She has made it clear that she does not believe she has any special insight into the meaning of Nick's work.

* CreatorBreakdown: After releasing two albums to a largely indifferent reception, Drake's despair on ''Pink Moon'' is particularly striking.



* DoingItForTheArt: The almost obsessive practice Drake put into his guitar certainly shows in his effortless playing.
* MissingEpisode:
** Or a variant thereof: While we have three albums, several bootleg albums, pictures and some home footage from his childhood, no moving footage of an adult Nick Drake exists anywhere.
** The four tracks he recorded for John Peel had the tapes officially wiped (as the BBC did at the time), but two of them were taped and bootlegged. For years, the other two tracks were thought to be lost, but it turned out another person taped them at the time. They might be released officially at some point if the appropriate release came up.

His big sister, Gabrielle Drake, is an actress, probably best known for TV's ''Series/{{UFO}}''. (Indeed, when Nick was alive, what little attention he did get from the press often referred to him as Gabrielle's brother.) In recent years, as Nick's reputation has grown, she has devoted a considerable amount of time to managing his music and seeing to the release of recordings that never made it onto his albums. She can be heard singing on his posthumous ''Family Tree'', as can their mother, Molly. Molly Drake was a singer and songwriter as well; though she apparently never intended to release any of the recordings she made in the 1950s, in 2013 an album of her music, ''Molly Drake'', was released. Joe Boyd, Nick's producer, called Molly's music "the missing link in the Nick Drake story."
