« It was a point where he was a little bit unsteady, and a lot more
vulnerable. So we tried to help him. We took him breakfast, or, were
like, Stay over… sleep on the couch I think that’s what he wanted…
He felt like he could disappear.
« He still felt like a boy. In some ways, he was very mature and developed, and in other ways, he was nothing near.
« I feel like Memphis walked him down the aisle. Because he was dreaming

« It’s been 20 years and I am still dumbfounded by the beauty of his soul. »
“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.”
JEFF BUCKLEY, (November 17, 1966 - May 29, 1997 - ∞). We miss you, Jeff. «The joyful freedom I saw him feeling when he was in Memphis was profound. It seemed to me that this freedom allowed him to dive into parts of his life he’d been wanting to but hadn’t been able to while in NYC. I feel that ultimately, he did what he needed to do for himself to set himself free from the shackles he had been feeling about the past… and if he could, indeed, feel that his time was coming to and end, he did a great job on it. It’s been 20 years and I am sill dumbfounded by the beauty of his soul.»
“I know we have some enemies, but we have some friends too.”
The first trailer for Loving, unveiled Tuesday, shows Ruth Negga’s and Joel Edgerton’s fight for their love.
The Jeff Nichols film, based on a true story, stars Edgerton as Richard Loving, whose interracial marriage to Mildred (Negga) caused them to be sentenced to prison in Virginia in 1958. Their case was taken up by the American Civil Liberties Union and eventually went all the way to the Supreme Court, resulting in the end of America’s miscegenation laws.
