Tim Buckley began his career as a folk singer, releasing his first record in 1966. His second album, 1967's Goodbye and Hello, reflected the folk and anti-war movements with songs such as "Pleasant Street" and "No Man Can Find the War." His subsequent releases jumped from genre to genre, from experimental rock to jazz-rock and even funk and soul. Though often critically acclaimed, he was very outspoken at times and his records didn't sell well, and he died of a heroin overdose in 1975. His son is alternative rock star Jeff Buckley, about whom Tim wrote "I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain" in 1967.
