Did You Know?

Interesting facts and trivia about Jeff Buckley. By Songfacts®.

Jeff Buckley was born in Southern California, where he grew up. His parents were Mary Guibert and Tim Buckley, but Jeff was raised primarily by his mother and stepfather, Ron Moorehead. He went by the name "Scotty Moorehead" for most of his early life.

A renowned guitarist and singer-songwriter, Jeff Buckley's career was cut short by his death in 1997. Though he wrote hundreds of songs, Buckley had recorded only one studio album at the time of his death.

Jeff moved often as a child, and only met his biological father Tim Buckley once, at the age of 8. He decided to take on the Buckley name after his father, also a musician, died of a drug overdose in 1975 at age 28. Jeff played his father's tribute concert, "Greetings from Tim Buckley," in Brooklyn in 1991. The concert was Jeff's way of paying last respects to his father, but it had the unintentional effect of kicking off Jeff Buckley's musical career.
