You guyz realize it would be Jeff Buckley's 50th TODAY!???
Did not really know him or his Dad, Tim but 70% sure a former GF of my 60s - 70s dating era went with Tim Buckley in the late 60s.
We were all 17 to 20 (alcohol was legal at 18) and her brother was really into the Village/NYC music scene - a roadie type, not a musician... and I never found out what happened. Tim Buckley is engrained in my brain though. Her brother had something to do with getting us tix for the Mothers of Invention at the Cafe au Go Go. Her brother probably set her up with a date with Tim ... hmmmmmmm AND out of the blue loaned me his surf board for the summer. Wiki shows Jim Underwood of the MoI to influenced Tim to come to NYC from LA around 1966/67. In 1966 Tim left his wife, then in LA, just before Jeff was born. That MoI concert (1967) is at he top of life experiences and without medical marihuana or Alcohol. Most clubs in the Village didn't have liquor licenses.
The postlude is that my GFs brother was lucky to work as "Set Manager" at Studio 54. When I knew him he was always energized and loved being with people of all kinds --- and music. I have read his blog nearly 50 years later and he, as a recovering addict, writes a fantastic column - he still shows how much he really likes people... and helps them - which Tim could have used.
So here's Tim Buckley live at the Fillmore. By the way I doubled with friends and we group-eed ourselves to the MoI Fillmore's stage door and followed Zappa et. al. through Washington Square. Sooooo dorky yet sooooo cool.
I just lost track of the Tim Buckley at Fillmore YouTube video but here's another about Jeff and his Dad. Happy 50th Jeff.
I don't know Karly and Sigurdr. Looks like Tim and Jeff might be sending us some vibes.
