"A Pure Drop" PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

During his thirty years, Jeff Scott Buckley lived many lives: suburban loner, music school misfit, rock and roll gypsy. His real life was only revealed after his tragic death, more than 10 years ago in the Mississippi river, hours before he was due to start rehearsals for the follow up album to "Grace". Buckley's friends, peers, enemies, lovers, collaborators and others all speak to author Jeff Apter. The contents of his many personal letters are revealed for the first time. The book explores his ongoing battles with the concept of stardom, his desire for escape and the attempts to deal with the unavoidable legacy of his equally gifted father, Tim Buckley. Even after his death more than 10 years ago, he is still influential. Bono once said 'Jeff Buckley was a pure drop in an ocean of noise.'
