Ten years gone...

Jeff Buckley would have been 40 today...

Another reason I love NPR:

Ten years ago Tuesday, singer/guitarist Jeff Buckley took an ill-fated swim in a Memphis harbor. At the time, he was a rising star, but in the years since, he's become something of an icon.

The posthumous success of Jeff and Elliott Smith are a testament to indie music culture. Rest in peace, guys.
