Jeff Buckley’s manager to release a new biography on the 21st anniversary of the late singer’s death
Jeff Buckley’s manager, Dave Lory, is preparing to release a new biography on the 21st anniversary of the late singer’s death
Buckley, who died on May 29th, 1997 after drowning in the Wolf River Harbor in Memphis, is widely regarded as one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time.
Entitled Jeff Buckley From Hallelujah To The Last Goodbye, the new biography is worked alongside music journalist Jim Irvin who helps tell Lory’s relationship with Buckley.
“I’ve never been able to tell it from my perspective before, nor have I participated in any of the books or interviews previously written,” Lory said in a press statement.
“Apart from a few select occasions, I have refused to talk about my time with this unique artist. I found it too painful, too raw to revisit, for decades, but now I’m ready to tell my side of his story and to share my memories of the artist who burned so bright for too short a time but left a mark that is finding more new, devoted fans with every passing year.”
