“Jeff Buckley and Jimmy Page cried when they met one another for the first time, it has been claimed. Chris Dowd explains that the pair were so in awe of each other that their first meeting was an emotional affair. Dowd says: ‘Jeff told me they cried. They actually cried when they met each other. Jimmy heard himself in Jeff, and Jeff was meeting his idol. A lot of people thought Tim was the influence on Jeff, but it was really Led Zeppelin.”

“Part of what was so beautiful about Jeff was that he touched everybody; he was very affectionate. His relationship with friends, male or female, lovers, musicians, audience members, it was the same.

And i believe he was, wholeheartedly, but he didn’t have enough of himself to give. His inclination was to engage everybody. ”
