More About Jeff Buckley by Dave Lory; Jim Irvin
 
 
 
Overview
The definitive book on iconic cult hero Jeff Buckley, the singer who made just one record but inspired a generation of rock musicians. Written by his manager Dave Lory, Jeff Buckley includes interviews with others who worked closely with him who have never spoken before.

For the first time since Jeff Buckley's untimely death on May 29, 1997, his manager Dave Lory reveals what it was like to work with one of rock's most celebrated and influential artists. Go on the road and behind the scenes with Jeff, from the release of his debut EP Live at Sin-e to the second album Buckley never completed.

Jeff Buckley includes testimony from the many people who worked closely with Jeff both on and off stage and includes never-before-shared intimate scenes that only Lory witnessed, including what went down immediately after Lory got that fateful call, "Jeff is missing."

"There is no way to predict what he would be doing today. He could do anything. He had a way of playing the most beautiful song you ever heard and singing them...and still with the way he sang, create a bit of an uncomfortable edge if he wanted to, and he did this with his voice." - Chris Cornell

"He absolutely touched every emotion and in a total class of his own. He was iconic. Jeff Buckley was one of the greatest losses of all." - Jimmy Page

"Jeff Buckley was a pure drop in an ocean of noise." - Bono

"When he started singing the classical song] Dido's Lament at the Meltdown Festival] rehearsal, there were all these classical musicians who could not believe it. Here's a guy shuffling up on stage and singing a piece of music normally thought to be the property of certain types of a] specifically developed voice, and he's just singing, not doing it like a party piece, but doing something with it." - Elvis Costello

"Man I tell ya...I'll never forget the way he did it...I was just f****** speechless...one of the most memorable moments of my life...I just wish I had seen him more." - Eddie Vedder
