Any Jeff Buckley fans? Just interested in thoughts on all the upcoming films.
I'm a huge fan - and I would love to watch a great biopic.. but three being announced at once seems excessive. His death has always bothered me for numerous reasons (his l yrics, the manner, the location).

His songs have been on every damned reality show.. maybe he is just a trend.

Easily one of the best musician ever to walk the earth. I've lived in Memphis most of my life, a old friend of mine was a EMT and he was working the night he drowned in the Miss. River. He was apart of the team that recovered his body. I find myself shaking my head in disbelief everytime I think of what a tragic end to a true musician in every sense of the word.

These are from his 2nd album "Sketches For My Sweetheart, The Drunk." He died before it was finished/released...

I'm not looking forward to seeing his image cashed in on so heavily - one article said he will be played in one of the films by "Gossip Girl cutie." gross.

I go through phases of keeping his music playing.. I've been there lately. All his songs about drowning both fascinate and sadden me. I would like to think some people just have a sense of their fate.

But this picture bothers me:

Jimi was killed - his manager full on admitted to killing him for insurance. He was killed in a plane crash - but the body never found. I think he was ex-CIA? I can't remember.

I personally believe Kurt was murdered by Courtney for various reasons. The guy investigating her ended up dead and she is just a freak.

The mystery surrounding Jim Morrison's death is fascinating. Only one person saw his body?

I believe there is more to John Lennon's death than the official explanation.

Obviously I get into the rock star conspiracies. But I really don't know about Jeff Buckley - there isn't a huge wealth of information on him like the others. I couldn't find anything in old posts on here.

I know there are music lovers on GLP - I love the threads. I always love to hear other people love Jeff's music too.
