Nick Drake

Nick Drake: It has been reported that Heath Ledger had an obsession with this withdrawn musician, who died of an overdose of prescription antidepressants at the age of 26. Not much is known about Drake, who was severely depressed and unrecognized during the '70s when he was making music. Ledger reportedly shot and edited a music video of the singer's "Black Eyed Dog," featuring himself drowning in a bathtub as the song ends. It was the last song Drake recorded before he died.
