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.
