Tim Buckley

Tim BuckleyFrom: Washington D.C., MD, USA

Timothy Charles “Tim” Buckley III (February 14, 1947 – June 29, 1975) was an American singer and musician. His music and style changed considerably through the years; his first album (1966) was mostly folk oriented, but over time his music incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul, avant-garde and an evolving “voice as instrument,” sound. Though he did not find commercial success during his lifetime his influence is felt today by people such as the English indie rock band Starsailor who named themselves after his album of the same name and he is much admired now for his uniqueness and innovation as a musician including his great vocal range and singing ability. He died aged 28, leaving behind wife Judy and son Taylor, and son Jeff Buckley from his marriage to Mary Guibert.

Blue Melody: Tim Buckley Remembered is a biography of late 1960s and 70s American musician and songwriter, Tim Buckley, written by his former lead guitarist and friend Lee Underwood. The book is an overview of the life and times of Tim Buckley and his group, documenting live performances and studio sessions and is well worth hunting down.
