Tim Buckley (1947-1975) was an experimental folk musician who preformed during the 1960s and 1970s. His albums are (in my opinion) phenomenal. He died at the young age of 28 (goodbye), but today is the day he was born (hello). Happy birthday, Tim, you left us too soon.
Tim's son, Jeff Buckley (1966-1997) is hands down one of my favorite musicians to have ever lived. He too, left us far too soon.
I am currently involved in a biography about both Tim and Jeff Buckley (book 7, week 7). The confusing jumble of love and loss and music and memory is beautiful and heartbreaking. For fans of either Tim or Jeff, it is a great read. The estrangement of father and son and the tortured musical genius of both is a story worthy of entering.
