Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

Posted 22 July 2011 by Gold FM in Music

Jeffrey Scott Buckley - November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997.

Thought by some to be the greatest rendition of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah', this bittersweet version is a legacy of Buckley's promising career. He died tragically when he went for an impromptu swim in New York's Wolf River while waiting for his band mates. He was swimming fully clothed when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat and drowned. He was 30 years old and it was a starting to happen for him.
