"I don’t think Heath rolled Swans… however he had stated that his favourite artist was a man by the name of Nick Drake whom had a album named “Five Leaves Left.” That most likely is how the name came about. Anyhow I’m sure the bar will be incredible and is a great way to remember a great actor."

Maybe DBTH was wrong about where the name came from....but he did go all the way across the river to snatch the pictures for us (that he is so adamant about us crediting).  In any event, we agree that the place will most likely be a good way to remember the great actor.
