Jeff Buckley: From Hallelujah to Last Goodbye

Dave Lory picked Jeff Buckley up in a white Ford contour van in the winter of 1994 for Buckley's first solo tour and co-managed Buckley all the way through his tragic and untimely death. For many years he did not feel ready to look back on his time with the revered singer but now that has changed - he has a new book called Jeff Buckley: From Hallelujah to Last Goodbye and he dropped by the Cafe to give us an early preview before it comes out May 29th. Lory gives us a window into Buckley's tremendous artistic life, including the triumphs and challenges surrounding the 1994 release of his debut Grace. And Lory mines the painful memory of Buckley's disappearance in 1997 – including the final voicemail Buckley left for Lory shortly before his death as well as the spooky Buckley experience he had many years later.
