Not sure if this should be in the Music or Movies section, but I went with my gut ...

Billboard.com (billboard.com) is reporting that gone-way-too-soon singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley will have his life chronicled in a big screen movie.

For you kids out there that have never heard of him, I would highly recommend picking up his album Grace. It's a masterpiece.

This is great, I hope the film turns out well.

I first heard of Jeff Buckley from some website that had a review of "Grace." Included in that review were quotes and captions from 20 or 30 different musicians all saying how it was one of the best albums they'd ever heard. And these weren't no-name acts either, they were people like Ed Vedder, Bono, Paul McCartney, Chris Cornell, and Bob Dylan. Needless to say I got the album and was in agreement. Not going to waste anybody's time with a review of it or anything, because if you like rock music at all you simply must listen to Jeff Buckley.

There's also a live album called 'Mystery White Boy,' and a double album of unreleased/unfinished stuff called 'Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk.'



Ken Kennedy debuted a new finisher: Jeff Hardy fans will insist on calling it the Swanton Bomb, but it looks WAY more devastating when not performed by a 180-pound fruitcake.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

"I know, I know you are saying "sure there was some bad calls, but Jake Gyllenhaal obviously dropped too many easy catches and Ang Lee had some horrible clock management at the end of each half!"" (krakken2000)


No argument here. It probably says more than "CASH GRAB" when Sony reissues the only full-length he released during his lifetime, as well as his debut EP (Live at Sin-), in 2-CD Giant Ass-Fuck Legacy Editions. I have both, and I'd highly recommend 'em, especially if you didn't get the original releases.

Cool. Very much looking forward to it. I had only heard of but not heard Jeff Buckley when I saw him open for Julianna Hatfield at Bogart's in Cincinnati. It was all I could to wait until Ear-X-Tacy opened in Louisville the next morning so I could get the disc (Grace). It stayed in my portable CD player for quite some time.

Not long after he drowned, it fell out while I was going in to my old apartment and was scratched all to hell. I bought another copy immediately and have since bought the Legacy edition of this seminal album from an artist taken from us waaaay too soon.



It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

The song "Wave Goodbye" on Chris Cornell's lone solo album, Euphoria Morning, is written about Jeff Buckley.
