Jeff Buckley
Be the best.
No negativity,
No weakness,
No acquiescence to fear or disaster,
No errors of ignorance,
No evasion from reality.
- Jeff Buckley

Forever in our hearts
We love you, Jeff!

Grace is like…a lot of this stuff … I don’t know how to describe it to you…It’s just a bunch of things about my life that I wanted to put in a coffin and bury forever so I could get on with things.

 Jeff Buckley on his album, ‘Grace’

This album was released 20 years ago today and it still sounds like it could been recorded yesterday. ‘Grace’ is a haunting piece of work. I feel honored to have even been alive when it was composed. It pains me such an exquisite talent and beautiful soul couldn’t have stayed longer. When I first listened to Jeff Buckley thoroughly, that voice, it was like I imagined colours that didn’t exist and I thought to myself “my ears have been blessed, my psyche has been cleansed.” Rest in peace angel, thank you for filling me up with so much light.

And what do I want people to get from the music? Whatever they want. Whatever you like. Somebody asked me what I wanted to do. I just said I wanted to…just to give back to it what it’s given me. And to meet all the other people that are doing it…just to be in the world, really.- Jeff Buckley Happy 20th birthday to the greatest album to ever Grace the world! We love you, Jeff!

All the girls, all the waitresses in the cafe, fell in love with him. He fell in love with one of them and got a job washing dishes that night.

"I don’t like stadium shows because usually the act on the stage is so big that people take them for granted. In the middle of a song they don’t understand, they go away and buy a program, or a hot dog, or a beer, or something. It’s just like a swap meet, an event. That would kill me. I’d be so sad."

Jeff didn’t want to be this over-produced white-boy blues type. What interested him was being on the road, re-interpreting the songs every night, jamming, getting to know each other’s instincts.

At Sin-é, he wasn’t like a human being, but more like a cartoon character.
