I don’t believe Jeff did cover Louie Louie, I’ve definitely never heard anything, so you might have confused him with someone else. However, I’m sure someone will write in if I’m wrong, haha.
No! :( Unfortunately, I do not, and it’s not from a lack of searching. Perhaps someone can put us out of our misery by magically knowing what book this is from. Thank you!
Guh, it totally escapes me, I’ve seen it a million times too. I want to say the Grace Around The World documentary. I’m sure one of my many helpful followers will write in with the correct answer.
Normal doesn’t exist. Be as weird and expressive as you want, love passionately. Jeff’s music has a way of touching the soul. So if there is such a thing as a religious experience, that’s definitely it.
No, that’s totally my fault, I accidentally deleted your message and I had no idea how to alert you of the fact, as you are anonymous. So I’m glad you wrote back in. Thank you, I rather enjoyed the article and it’s nice to hear an opinion from one of Jeff’s friends on Greetings.
"Jeff Buckley was one of the first and best mutants who wandered into what would eventually become this modern-day X-Men academy that fights the revolution against the media. In truth, he was a co-founder of the academy. But that is a story for another day. Jeff was one of the least linear people I’ve ever met. Planning was not his strong suit. Jeff would float through his days and nights aimlessly, clinging to the notes and chords and words in his head and finding refuge in his guitar, until he would stumble regularly upon a shiny bauble in the form of a beautiful and disturbed waif-of-a-muse or a genius idea that would capture his attention, and his mutant talent would then surface to traverse a straight line between the present and the future as he would saddle up to the shiny object or person, look it in the eye, and orbit around it while also changing the other person’s or thing’s spatial course."
"Art only succeeds when it inspires action from other humans to dig a little bit deeper, to walk alone over the proverbial bridge, and take the journey of life and creation away from the linear and planned path and toward the next shiny bauble. No, I did not hate this movie at all. I am even grateful for it. Perhaps nobody else will see it as I do, as a big, overdue, “fuck you” to the 1960s people and the horse they rode in on, and therefore anthem for those of us who came later and had to clean up after them. I’m not assigning motive here: It’s quite possible that its creators did not intend it to be that. But Jeff would have wanted a film about his life to say so, and Penn Badgley, who did not lip sync, channeled that point memorably onto the screen. And for 99 minutes, it allowed me to pretend that a special conversation cut short sixteen years ago this month was somehow still ongoing. That’s what an authentic movie should do: expand the terrain of the imagination, and smuggle the seeds of “secret history” into the future, to be planted, cultivated, and harvested, because tomorrow is another day."

Thank you! I love being apart of this blog, so I very much appreciate it. Unfortunately there aren’t any really good photographs of Grace in his handwriting, I do have one picture though and in all my years of doing this blog, it’s really the best I’ve come across, so I hope this helps you and your tattoo. My Buckley tattoo is definitely one of my favorite things, so I know how you feel. I shall post the picture for you!
I don’t really know how to explain that accurately. It has nothing to do with the film or actors or anything like that. It just makes me sad.
Still can’t bring myself to watch it, maybe one day.
Well, it was supposed to start production in like November of 2012, but for some reason was halted, I don’t believe anything is moving forward at this point. Reeve Carney had been chosen to play Buckley, but shortly after it seemed that he had either dropped out or had been dropped. So the status of the film seems to be in limbo right now.
I get it. :(
I do indeed! I actually have a few ring photographs, let me post them for you!
Haha! I do understand.
OH TRUST ME! If there was audio of Jeff performing The Rain Song anywhere on the Internet, I would have found it by now, that is my favorite Zeppelin song and I might actually die in a pile of happiness to hear it. As you’ve seen, there’s just simply a photograph of that incredible moment. Which is all I can post for you, my apologies.
