Hello to this very special a should say blog. A small (or should I say big)music haven this is. Anyaway Tim Buckley was, is and will probably ever be my all time favourite artist. One of a kind he was. Well I dont know the right words to speak about him as I think his unique talent deserves.
Thanks for many great posts.
