So try to be true, even if it's only in your hazey way.

‘His shyness and awkwardness were almost transcendent. A tall man, his clothes - black corduroy jacket and pants, frayed white shirt - hung around him like bedclothes after a particularly bad night’s sleep. He sat on a small stool, hunched tight over a tiny Guild guitar, beginning songs and, halfway through, forgetting where he was and stumbling back to the start of that song, or beginning an entirely different song which he would then abandon mid-way through if he remembered the remainder of the first. He sang away from the microphone, mumbled and whispered, all with a sense of precariousness and doom. It was like being at the bedside of a dying man who wants to tell you a secret, but who keeps changing his mind at the last minute. There was a new song that he sang that night, that he kept starting and stopping, never completing; he finally just sang the opening lines over and over again: ‘Do you curse where you came from/Do you swear in the night?’ (Hazey Jane I). ‘It was chilling and morbidly fascinating. No one took their eyes off him for a second - there was a real sense of keeping him there with our gaze and attention, that if we looked away, however briefly, he might disappear, or forget that we were there and go to sleep.’

Happy 45th

45 is so young. 30, way too young. Thankfully Jeff did alot in his 30 years that we can still appreciate and love today. I hope I never run out of bootlegs or unreleased recordings.
Jeff's music and memory has brought so much to my life. RIP

Also wanted to show off my shirt I got on ebay a few months ago (it's been taken of ebay bc of copyright or infringement or whatever, but I got it!)

the people i was attracted to always came from NY

"I didn't tell anyone that I was going. I don't need someone else telling me what to do. I just sold everything and split: I'm the sort of person who mulls things over but never discusses their plans. I felt the pull from an early ages. I must have been about 12 when I started to think about its bright lights. When I was living in California, the people I was attracted to always came from New York. They were totally different. I got sick of being in California because I never felt I belonged, but I can't ever imagine tiring of New York."

Jeff Buckley Goodbye and Hello Documentary

"Jeff's voice made you want to build shrines and I realize now that Jeff Buckley was a shrine to his voice." Robert Gordon

"Jeff was such a hilarious comedian, an amazing mimic. One of the things that might get lost, with people who only knew him through his records was his sense of humor. In concert some of his more indulgent solo performances before he went on tour with the band, were just you know comedy acts almost. He was that on and always just an incredible wit. Just a funny guy and pick up anything, do like " Teen Spirit" or whatever the pop hit of the day was" Nicholas Hill

"I met Jeff a few times I guess, I think before I really felt like I met him. He was really capable of connecting like when he was present he was really present so he made you feel like you had known him for 150 years and that you were the most important person in his world at that time. He had just a phenomenal gift that way." Jack Mc Keever

"I think those two years on the road changed him alot... he was less of a clown, and more in need of a rest" Merri Cyr

"I just looked at him as a person, not as sort of that iconographic mythologic beastI didn't like the mythological person so well, because it was so much at the expense of the person" Merri Cyr

"I can remember hearing from people that on certain days that he was feeling bad, I would ring him up and leave him a message, and he'd ring back to say thanks, but if he was in that place, he'd acknowledge that you reached out and was very appreciative but at the same time you know, didn't settle well(?)" Jack Mc Keever

"It's very rare to meet someone who is so, so ready to be so honest, so unpretentious, so unwilling to lie about anything even if it protects them. that you that when Jeff was with you and ooking in your eyes there was noone more important to him than you at that moment. and that when he said he loved you, that was the strongest and truest love that could be loved, and that doesn't happen in this world you know, that doesn't happen." Mary Guibert

"He wanted to be so there, so on, so giving 24 hours a day. He really lived at a really intense pace." Ellen Cavolina

: What is your favorite investment quote?

A Spanish quote translated: “You won’t get anything that you don’t ask for?” People can’t complain about not having something that you didn’t try to get. In general I am sensitive to people with negative outlooks.

I love the sport of ambition.

I wish I had seen this video before I took my etching class, I have a lot more respect for the process after seeing his work~

Collaborations with Louis Vuitton:

I first heard of Campbell when he tattooed Heath Ledger.

He tattooed Heath's castmates from The Imaginirium of Dr. Parnassus with the heart Heath drew on a letter to the directors daughter, Holly Gilliam.

He also helped Ledger's plans for Five Leaves, a restuarant in Greenpoint, manifest in the Fall of 08. I had the chance to eat there a few times in 2009! Definitely my favorite restaurant.

He's had fine art exhibits, attracting everyone from tattooed kids to big name celebrities.

His art can be found on the bodies of Sting, Robert, Downey, Jr., Courtney Love, Orlando Bloom, Josh Hartnett, and Marc Jacobs.

"All my life I just wanted to be a beatnik"

“All my life I just wanted to be a beatnik. Meet all the heavies, get stoned, get laid, have a good time. That’s all I ever wanted. Except I knew I had a good voice and I could always get a couple of beers off of it. All of a sudden someone threw me in this rock ‘n’ roll band. They threw these musicians at me, man, and the sound was coming from behind. The bass was charging me. And I decided then and there that that was it. I never wanted to do anything else. It was better than it had been with any man, you know. Maybe that’s the trouble.”

"i was full of jack london and jack kerouac"

"I sometimes think I'm so boring. I'll read an article about how Bob Dylan manipulated his image, put on these false personas, pretended he was like Woody Guthrie, and I think, what's the obligation in an interview to play into some mystique? But if you do, I think you end up dead."
"Acting was something that came very easily to me. It fell in my lap.
But the people I admired the most were not really movie stars. I was full of Jack London and Jack Kerouac."

Twice during his 20s he took a two-year leave of absence, once to go to NYU and study English (he dropped out when a part came up), and then to write a novel. In each case he says he was testing himself to see if acting was just a phase, and in each case he returned to it with modified expectations.
