school girl crush: JEFF BUCKLEY (RIP)

You were only 30 when you passed and I never knew you, but I will always love you. “LAST GOODBYE” goes down in the breakup book for “best song to listen to while trying to re-live the pain of a lost love”. Wherever you are, you should know – you are not forgotten.


Jeffrey Scott “Jeff” Buckley (Scotty Moorhead) was born in Anaheim, California, United States on November 17, 1966 to musicians Tim Buckley and Mary Guibert.

He had emerged in New York City’s  club scene in the 1990s as one of the most remarkable musical artists of his generation, acclaimed by audiences, critics, and fellow musicians alike. His first commercial recording, the four-song EP Live at Sin-é, was released in December 1993 on Columbia Records. The EP captured Buckley, accompanying himself on electric guitar, in a tiny coffeehouse in New York’s East Village, the neighborhood he’d made his home…

…Buckley passed away in a drowning accident in the Wolf River, a tributary of the Mississippi River, on May 29th, 1997.
