First Post

So, Jeff's music has been an important part of my life for many years now, as I'm sure it has been for many of you here. I was also really affected by his death. I'd like to share a dream I had a few years ago.

In this dream, Jeff and I were laying on a bed together. Not necessarily in a romantic way, but we were smiling and we were both happy. We were laying in a T shape, with my head on his belly. After a moment, I remembered that he had died. I started to cry and looked up at him and asked him why he went away. He looked back at me and said "I am here always. Remember me now. This is our moment together."

And that was the dream. It was short and it was simple. And you can call me crazy- but I do like to believe that it was my special moment just between the two of us. It felt as real as anything I've ever felt.

Has anyone else dreamt of Jeff?

Buckley's 'Goodbye' tunes up: New musical aims to bow in 2010-11 season

"The Last Goodbye," a rock-tuner adaptation of "Romeo and Juliet" featuring the songs of Jeff Buckley, is gearing up to preem during the 2010-11 legit season.

Show is the first to be authorized by and created in conjunction with the estate of the late Buckley, the singer-songwriter who has attained a cult following since his 1997 death at the age of 30.

Show weaves Buckley tunes -- including "Lover, You Should've Come Over" and "Eternal Life" -- into Shakespeare's story of star-crossed lovers, with dialogue takendirectly from the Bard play.

Michael Kimmel conceived, adapts and directs the show in collaboration with Mary Guibert, Buckley's mother and the executor of his estate, and Jeff Buckley Music.

Although the musician recorded only a single album in the studio -- "Grace," released in 1994 -- further material, including studio and demo tracks for his unfinished second album, has been released posthumously following his accidental drowning.

Buckley also got a recent profile boost when his version of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" was performed by a contestant on "American Idol" in 2008, helping to push the song onto Billboard and iTunes digital charts.

A concert version of "Last Goodbye" was seen last year at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater, where three dates sold out quickly thanks in part to the support of Buckley's fans.

An upcoming developmental reading in Gotham is in the works, with a full production out-of-town soon to be finalized. A couple of commercial producers also are eyeing the property.

Kris Kukul is music director and arranges Buckley's rock songs for the stage. Lauren Fitzgerald is credited as creative consultant.


Restored Jeff Buckley Live Session Now Available in KCRW Archives

Jeff Buckley performed on Morning Becomes Eclectic in 1994, before his artistic success and his heartbreaking, untimely death. That appearance, including an interview with Chris Douridas, has been resurrected and reedited so a high quality audio session is now available on

I listened to it last night and if you are a fan of his work – OR have never heard him before – it is a MUST listen. It brought tears to my eyes, both because it was so beautiful and because we lost him way too soon.

I learned that KCRW not only played a pivotal role in introducing him to music fans, but in Jeff’s life as well. He tells Chris that listening to KCRW “made his straight jobs a lot more enjoyable.”

Read Chris’ reflections on the session – which almost didn’t happen – and hear classic tracks from the album “Grace” like “Mojo Pin,” “So Real,” “Grace,” and “Lover, You Should Have Come Over.”
