SUPERTRAMP - 40 years "Crime Of The Century"

Actually they were already dead. Even dead as a doornail. After two albums that sold as well as soap-flavoured chocolate and, according to guitarist/singer Roger Hodgson, didn't sound much better, the chapter Supertramp seemed to be over in 1971 - because everything really went wrong. The band, which at that time consisted of Kevin Currie, Frank Farrell, Dave Winthrop, Rick Davies and Hodgson, fell apart after a disastrous Scandinavian tour.

Quiet outcry - NICK DRAKE died forty years ago

The short career of Nick Drake serves the topos of the wistful poet who died early. During his lifetime no more than a breath in the roaring turmoil of the music business, his manageable work increasingly found the deserved recognition after his death. Numerous biographies and entries in best lists have contributed to bringing his melancholic, intense music to a new audience. Nicholas Rodney "Nick" Drake was born on 19 June 1948 in Burma, where his father had gone for professional reasons. A short time later his parents moved back to Great Britain, where he flirted fiercely with the emerging British folk music from 1965 onwards.
