    ‘Dream Brother’ by David Browne

    This book covers the lives of both Tim Buckley, and his son Jeff Buckley.  Both insanely talented musicians, who barely knew each other, and who both lost their lives tragically young. I’m a big fan of both Tim and Jeff, so this book was a really enjoyable read.
