It’s a story born for Hollywood. The real-life, entwined tales of Tim and Jeff Buckley have everything a movie producer could dream of — high drama, great tragedy, and deep beauty. Both singers had movie-star looks, and each had enormous, and eccentric, talents. It only makes the story more star-crossed that Tim and Jeff barely knew each other. The younger Buckley was just 8 when his dad died of a heroin OD. And Tim had divorced Jeff’s mother years before. Given such tumult, it’s small wonder a star as big as Brad Pitt started talking about making a film about the saga over a decade ago.
Holding things up was Jeff’s mother, Mary Guibert, who controls his estate. First, it was to be directed by Jake Scott, who oversaw the cult movie “Welcome to the Rileys,” starring Kristen Stewart. Now he’s out and other directors are being considered. Names from Robert Pattinson to James Franco have been floated for the stars.

By Australian Associated Press. A new book titled Jeff Buckley: His Own Voice has opened a vault of personal treasures to fans of the late American musician, whose songs maintain a cult-like following. The book offers a glimpse into the late singer’s diaries, song writing books and personal photos. All the items were collected by his mother, who co-wrote the book. He was raised by his mother and stepfather after his biological father Tim Buckley divorced Guibert.
Tim died of an overdose at the age of 28 when Jeff was just nine. They had only met once before Tim’s death. After finishing high school and attending a music school in Hollywood, Jeff spent six years working in a hotel playing guitar for various bands. He moved to New York City in , where he made tapes of his original music and played at clubs around Lower Manhattan.
In those clubs he built a cult following, and record executives clambered to sign him to their labels. After signing to Columbia he released the now highly regarded album Grace, which included Buckley’s widely recognised cover of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. After the critical success of the album and a world tour, Buckley began working on his second record Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk.
While recording the album he moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where he would play local bars trying to figure out the live aspect of the new material.

Born in in California, Jeff Buckley began playing guitar at age 5. Armed with his distinct multioctave voice, Buckley emerged from New York’s music scene in a big way with his first release, ‘s Grace. The album made him an eventual sensation with both critics and fans, and his cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” went on to achieve a sublime standing with listeners. Three years later, just short of his 31st birthday and while recording tracks for his second album, Buckley drowned while swimming at night near Memphis, Tennessee.
Jeff Buckley was born on November 17, , in Anaheim, California, from musical lineage. His mother, Mary Guibert, was a classically trained musician, and his father, Tim Buckley, was a well-known folk singer. Buckley, however, only met his father one time; the two spent a week together when Jeff was 8. The elder Buckley died of a heroin overdose at age 28, less than a year after the pair’s meeting. Buckley was close with his stepfather, Ron Moorhead, and Moorhead may have had as much to do with Jeff Buckley’s musical path as Buckley’s bloodline in that he gave Buckley his first Led Zeppelin album, which would prove to be highly influential to the future musician.
After performing in a handful of cover bands throughout high school, Buckley attended the Los Angeles Musicians Institute after his high school graduation. Over the next several years, he played various gigs and wrote songs, looking for direction. It wasn’t long, though, before he left the group to embark upon a solo career. In early , Buckley went out on his first solo tour of small venues in support of the live album, and in the summer of , his first studio album, Grace , was released on August 23, the same day he and his band began their European tour in Dublin, Ireland.

But her obsession and passion for his music inspired her literary output. The Bay Area writer listened to Grace for nine months while writing her first published novel, God Shaped Hole, which came out in She dedicated the book to him, and then his mother, Mary Guibert, got a hold of it. But after she told me that I’d get to listen to all of his old demos and read his journals, I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll figure it out.
DeBartolo may not have been a comic book person, but she has a visual flair, having written and directed the romantic comedy film Dream For An Insomniac which starred Ione Skye and Jennifer Aniston. And by the time she was brought onboard for this graphic novel a decade ago, the author and her husband had already been running their Bright Antenna Records indie label for about two years, so she understood and empathized with the struggles of musicians.
He was hysterical, just such a goofball, and so focused. He had these lists that he would make when he was in high school, music school, and then as an adult. He just had this focus that was so inspiring, so that’s really what I wanted to capture.
