* A meta example, but the fact that Nick bounced back from his lowest point (the death of his son) with Skeleton Tree, which earned him the best reviews of his career (with a metascore of 99). He could've disappeared for a decade and no one would have blamed him, but he came back with his crowning achievement.
* The fact he got to meet and duet with one of his influences, Music/JohnnyCash for his recording of Music/HankWilliams "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" with the additional of Cave having done a cover of Cash's "The Singer" earlier in his career and Cash covered Cave's "The Mercy Seat" on one of his albums before that happened.
