‘A rich and moving portrait of two damaged, gifted people’ – Esquire.com
'As much poetry as biography' – Mojo
'A highly accomplished, dual biography by the well respected writer David Browne.' – Irish Times
‘A highly accomplished, dual biography by the well respected writer David Browne has dug deep into both men's lives and the entire Buckley family history to throw some light on this enigmatic tale. Extensively researched and featuring previously unpublished letters and diaries, Dream Brother does a great service to the legacy of these two talented musicians.'
'David Browne is a sensitive and committed writer eminently qualified to write the book his subjects so richly deserve ... There is a wealth of detail and a series of memorable vignettes which will fascinate those who have embraced Starsailor and Blue Afternoon or Grace and Live At Sin-E as part of their lives.' UncutReseña del editor:
Dual biography of father and son Tim Buckley and Jeff Buckley, enduring 60s and 90s musical icons, both of whom died young, and whose lives and careers eerily parallel one another.
When Jeff Buckley drowned in 1997, the music world was shaken to its foundations, not least because of the echoes of his father Tim’s demise. He too had been a brilliant and innovative musician with an extraordinary five-octave voice; and he too had died young, 28 in fact, after an accidental drugs overdose. But there the similarities end. Jeff hardly knew Tim, spending little more than a few weeks with him as a boy. Their careers were very different, Tim releasing eight albums in his lifetime, including the beautiful HappySad and the extraordinary and still out-there Starsailor, while Jeff released just one – the brilliant Grace, generally acknowledged as one of the great albums of the 90s.
More than just a biography of two musicians, Dream Brother is the story of what happens when The Business hooks up with The Artist, ultimately to neither’s benefit.
