Synopsis

During his 30 years, Jeff Scott Buckley lived many lives: suburban loner, music school misfit, and rock and roll gypsy. His real life was only revealed after his tragic death, 10 years ago in the Mississippi river, hours before he was due to start rehearsals for the follow up album to "Grace". Jeff Buckley's friends, peers, enemies, lovers, collaborators and others all speak of the Jeff Buckley they knew, or in some cases, they thought they knew. The contents of his many personal letters are revealed for the first time. His struggle with writers block is explored as is 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 10 years ago, he is still influential - Radiohead and Coldplay readily confess to his influence on their craft and Bono once said 'Jeff Buckley was a pure drop in an ocean of noise.'
