Portrait of Nick

Name: Nick Cave

Favorite Thing: Italian 18-karat-gold snake ring

Story: "About two years ago a young boy with cancer asked me to come and see him in the hospital, and he gave me this ring. It had been in his family for generations. There's a sense of ostentatiousness about it which I like. He died about a year and a half ago. I never take it off."
