Buckley : Legacy

I just finished watching Tim Buckley : My Fleeting House, produced by my friend, Rick Fuller, a superb documentary about a true and fearless artist who resisted industry sensibilities and even Western culture at large and who remains a testament to the creative gifts that have influenced music.

His son, Jeff Buckley, inherited these gifts from his father, including an extreme vocal range and original style and is more a part of the mainstream intellect [if you wish to call it that] now thanks to a cover of his cover of the Leonard Cohen song “Hallelujah” on a popular television show, which, in turn drove it up to the top of the charts on music download sites last month giving Jeff his first number one song 11 years after his death.
