Tim Buckley/Jeff Scott Buckley
 father and son . Tim Buckley was a folk-rock singer of the sixties and seventies known for his haunting melodies.

His son Jeff Scott Buckley followed in his father’s footsteps, however, a little too closely. Jeff’s music ranged from folk to rock to funk and critics compared his voice to that of Van Morrison. In 1994 he released the album “Grace” which yeilded the alternative hit “Last Goodbye” which reached #19 on the Billboard charts. On May 29th of 1997, Jeff was in Memphis to record a new album when he disappeared while swimming in the Mississippi River. His body was found floating in the “Old Miss” six days later, dead at 30.
