To know Jeff Buckley‘s all-too-brief body of work, is to love it. While the man with the golden voice shuffled off this mortal coil in an accidental Wolf River incident almost 14 years ago, his life will soon be represented on the silver screen. Ridley Scott’s son is attached to direct, and rumors are flying about what actor will play the lead (please no Robert Pattinson….please).
For my money, he also was responsible for perhaps the greatest cover of all time:
Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
