Intro and Info

Timothy Charles "Tim" Buckley III (February 14, 1947 – June 29, 1975) was an American singer and musician. His music and style changed considerably through the years; his first album (1966) was mostly Folk, but his subsequent albums experimented with Jazz, Psychedelia, Funk, Soul, Avant-Garde and an evolving "voice as instrument" sound.

Though he did not find commercial success during his lifetime, Buckley is admired by later generations for his innovation as a musician and vocal ability.

He died at the age of 28, leaving behind his sons Taylor and Jeff.
