How many times have you heard someone say ..


If I had money, I would do things my way...

When I had in my hands what was going to be Jeff Buckley's second album.. I was shocked by "Satisfied Mind", by the way he plays the guitar, the way he sings.. and the way he clears his throat...

He’s the last man in the line of the singing tradition that started with Robert Johnson and continued with Nick Drake, though there's a lot in between them... known and unknown..

Poor Jeff.. such a tragic end he was bound to found..

But I am happy to hear him sing ..
“… one thing's for certain when it comes my time,
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind mind mind, mind mind,…”


Which are priceless words …

  2. He will.. cause he sings with a lot of love and serenity ..
    His album Grace is the first I think about when people say there was no good music made after the 70's.. if they would only listen..
