Recently when one of the contestants on American Idol sang "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen. After the performance Simon Cowel said that this song , sung by Jeff Buckley, was his favourite of all time. Hmmm...who is/was Jeff Buckley?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Buckley#Singles. He was the son of Tim Buckley, a great singer who died in 1975 at the age of 28. Jeff, another great singer, drowned in 1997 at the age of 31! Missed the dude altogether!

I was aware of Jeff Buckley's work although not a fan. I do like "Hallelujah" a lot but that's because like Leonard Cohen. I don't normally admit that because people usually give me a funny look.

Tim Buckley was a big influence. I sang a number of his songs in sets at coffee houses while in college. Here's the first song of his I remember hearing. I still remember the friend who played it for me and where we were....

In 1967 I heard most of these:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967_in_music
but I totally missed Tim Buckley's first album. Listening now, to his early efforts, he reminds me a bit of Phil Ochs. I guess heroin can really shorten your career. Not everyone can pull a James Taylor or Eric Clapton!
