I was reading some archived Rolling Stone articles a few days ago and found out that Heath Ledger was a huge fan (“obsessed” was a term he used) of Nick Drake, even creating a video for the song “Black Eyed Dog”. The actual film, unfortunately, was not released and previously leaked copies were taken out from the net, so I’ve come to accept that I will never get to see it.
A fan, though, made his own version using the same song but incorporating snippets of Ledger’s creation that were shown on TV. Well at least it’ll give us a glimpse.
Ledger would’ve been played Drake in a movie perfectly, don’t you think? Especially since part of his obsession was his strong desire to tell Drake’s story someday.
