From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Timothy Charles Buckley III (February 14, 1947 – June 29, 1975) was an experimental vocalist and performer who incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul, and avant-garde rock in a short career spanning the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Buckley often regarded his voice as an instrument, a talent principally showcased on his albums Goodbye and Hello, Lorca, and Starsailor.

Buckley's album "Blue Afternoon" and "Starsailor" was issued on the Straight Records label found by Frank Zappa and his manager Herb Cohen. He was also the father of Jeff Buckley.
