He's a genuine legend of the last 10 yrs...Tragic way to go. The album Grace in particular is a great showcase of his talents. Remarkable vocal range, good writer, who could turn his hand to a lot of styles.

His father was Tim Buckley, also a successful recording artist.

Jeff sounded like Robert Plant...in fact "Grace" sounds as if Robert Plant fronted Pearl Jam. Great album by the way, probably my favorite, though "Sketches For My Swetheart The Drunk" comes close. I like the feel of the latter, just his demos, rough gems..unpolished genius.

^Cool, I hav'nt heard that album..... He also strikes me as unpolished genius. I really wonder how much of a cult figure he will become when more people catch on about him. A legend of our times? We'll see I guess.
I'm gonna have to find out some more about him. He screams talent!!!!

^"Sketches For My Swetheart The Drunk" is actually a 2 disc set of almost all original Buckley penned material. Worth listening everytime because the music is more upbeat than "Grace." I'm still waiting for that "Grace" Legacy Edtion Box set though..and I haven't got his live albums yet. I can't wait..

I saw him live in 1995 and wasn't impressed and never gave him a second chance.

I never saw him live, but I've seen some clips of Buckley live. I guess he was sometimes really struggling with his voice and experimenting how to use it the best way. For the audience, that might not always be nice to listen to. But I still think that Grace is an awesome album. I mean, the man must have touched something, you wouldn't go to a concert if he had not.

I didn't go to a concert, it was at a festival.

He did come across as a very sincere musicial who really put his soul into the music, but I just didn't find his song material interesting.

OK, the few details I remember...

It was in Werchter, Belgium
He was the first artist on the second stage that day, around 1 PM I think
He played about 40 minutes
I thought he was very intense, really going up in his music
I thought his songs were a bit boring
As was his stage presentation - little no interaction with the audience
I think he even had his eyes closed most of the time
There seemed to be a lot more girls into him than guys
He handed out flowers to random people in the audience after the show

Sorry, I don't remember that... It was ten years ago and I wasn't really interested in what was going on on stage...

I do remember that my cousin (who was there too) was a big fan, and he thought it was a really great show, so I guess it was.
