Tim Buckley
FameRank: 6

"Timothy Charles "Tim" Buckley III" was an American singer and musician. His music and style changed considerably through the years; his first album (1966) was mostly Folk music/folk, but his subsequent albums incorporated jazz, Psychedelic music/psychedelia, funk, soul, avant-garde and an evolving "voice as instrument" sound. Though he did not find commercial success during his lifetime, Buckley is admired by later generations for his innovation as a musician and vocal ability. He died at the age of 28 from a heroin overdose, leaving behind his sons Taylor and Jeff Buckley/Jeff, the latter of whom later went on to become a musician as well.
