That live version of "Hallelujah" that's on one of his posthumously released live albums is beautiful and haunting.

That's my favorite moment of his.

Has anyone read "Dream Brother," the book about Jeff and his dad Tim Buckley? I have it on my shelves and will get to it someday.

I am so, so, so glad I got to see him live in concert, (yes he actually came to Australia, not once but twice ) and it was an amazing night. I remember it was in the middle of a heatwave and fucking hot. God he was amazing, and yes I've wondered how he would be perceived now if he was still here.

well we can all wonder how our perception of someone who died would be had they lived. we do it all the time. it's actually a tired conversation...
that being said, when the dude from sublime died i don't think it cemented his place in the valhalla of rock musicians. so i don't think that dying universally ups the ante for our perceptions and memories of an artist. at the end of the day, we're left with what they recorded and wrote, and their influence on contemporary artists. cobain wrote genius pop songs, hendrix played a badass guitar, and jeff buckley left behind a few documents of his considerable and beautiful talents - and their lasting influence in the music community cannot be denied.
do you like the music? would you still be listening to 'grace' if buckley was still alive? i know i would...

I miss him.
I could've written this exact post. I was depressed when Buckley died. Seriously. It's such a tragedy.

I saw him live many times (even before "Grace" came out) and anyone who saw him live knows he was not overrated (unless you got him on a bad night, lol). He was the real deal. "Lover, You Should Have Come Over" just blew everyone away live. A sweet humble guy, too. I miss him. I think his songwriting would have matured and that he'd still be blowing us away today if he were still alive. I wept when he died and even attended the memorial service. A sad but beautiful day.

BTW, that song at the beginning of the thread is amazing. It brought back memories of hearing new stuff back in the day. Thanks for sharing.

I have tons of JB on my ipod, i cannot ever fathom not hearing this man sing.
I have listened to LYSOCO at least 3,000 times (honestly), and just put a live version of it on my ipod.

Other then U2, this man is the only other person to bring me to the deepest darkest depths of feeling,
whether it was to dance or to cry.
Everybody Here Wants You is an extremely sexy song.
Yard of Blonde Girls is pretty sexy too.
Forget Her...amazing.
Last Goodbye...my best friend said that everytime she hears this song reminds her of a man from my past,
and how it all ended with him.

But Lover, You Should've Come Over...esp. live...
is the most heartbreaking and painful song...(for personal reasons) that i have ever heard.
I cry almost every single time i hear it.
