Glen Hansard tells great stories about watching Jeff Buckley at New York's Sin E club in the early Nineties. I guess it was some time after the release of The Commitments, and according to every account, the scenes in that venue were transformational. Rufus Wainwright would also hang out there, totally aware of Buckley's talent and deeply envious of it. Glen and Jeff got on well, however, and as I recall, Bronagh Gallagher also sat in the presence of this outstanding deal. My experience of the man was some time later at the Shepherd's Bush Empire. I was sitting near Tracey Thorn and Elizabeth Frazer. Two impressive voices but they were pure fans at that show. I remember Jeff taking off his shirt and doing a weird kind of strip tease with his vest at the front of the stage. The girls were screaming and so were the boys. Then he sang and the entire audience swooned. It was extraordinary. Miss him.
