Jackson C. Frank

 Jackson Carey Frank (1943-1999) was an American folk musician. Although he released only one official album in his lifetime and never achieved much commercial success, he is reported to have influenced several better-known singer-songwriters such as Paul Simon and Nick Drake. Although Frank was well received in England for a while, in 1966 things took a turn for the worse as his mental health began to unravel, and his subsequent career took a plunge.  Frank died of pneumonia and cardiac arrest in Great Barrington, Massachusetts on March 3, 1999, at the age of 56
