GUEST,AB Nick Drake on BBC4 tonight (UK) (9) RE: Nick Drake on BBC4 tonight (UK) 18 Apr 10

I took my 15 year old daughter to see the original tribute concert at the Town Hall in Birmingham in 2009. I thought it much better than this version but a lot less polished. The Graham Coxon rendition of "Place to Be" was far superior and from the heart. From the comments I have read tonight on various sites, I think that the general concensus of opinion from Drake fans is that the concert wasn't generally well received on TV as the artists did not do justice to the songs. However, I feel that this is missing the point. I think the appreciation of Drakes music in this way is much healthier than the approach that many choose to take by hanging around his grave or morbidly obsessing about someone they will never truly know. It is also fun to see so many gifted and varied artists in one place, paying their own personal tributes to the music.
