BBC gets blue plaque wrong

BBC Music Day has put up a blue plaque on the Tanworth house where the iconic singer-songwriter Nick Drake lived and, at 26, tragically died.

Haplessly, the BBC got his birth date wrong – two years wrong.

Drake was born in 1948.

  • I think “Three Hours” was Drake’s finest work. As a songwriter he was better than excellent, both music and lyrics. He was a great guitarist, and a unique singer.
