In May 1995, “People magazine” placed Jeff Buckley 12th of the “50 most beautiful of the world”. Straight away Jeff went on to dye his hair black and stopped washing it, he wanted to become “ugly”. He wished to be loved due to the pure power of his music, not because he was handsome.
However, he had something so many people dream of… he had effortless beauty… in all of the ways of his life; from apperance, performance, composing skills, the way he wrote in both lyrics, where many of them came from his poems and how he wrote those poems.
Jeff Buckley’s soul was effortlessly beautiful and I thank him for that… as it creates the hope in me, that others can be just that too.
