* DownerEnding
* GenerationXerox: His music and his voice are surprisingly similar to his son's considering that he didn't raise him and possibly never met him.
* GenreBusting: His music became gradually more ambitious, and ''Starsailor'' was the LogicalExtreme of his jazz-folk brand, with full use of his octave range, free jazz, and chanson elements added.

* DownerEnding
DownerEnding: His life had one; he had only just cleaned himself up after years of drug usage and had just sold out several shows in Dallas. To celebrate the latter, he went out drinking with friends, and one such friend produced a bag of heroin, which Buckley ingested and overdosed on.

* JerkAss: Pretty much, since he left his wife to take care of a son by herself, and then fired his band for no reason. Hard pill to swallow.



* OvershadowedByAwesome: Arguably by his son, despite Jeff's [[ShortLivedBigImpact even shorter recording career,]] although he would likely be far less well known, if not for his son's stardom.

* ManOfAThousandVoices: Just listen to ''Starsailor''. The fact that he has a voice spanning almost ''six octaves'' certainly supported this ability.

As a child in California, Tim Buckley was steeped in classic jazz such as FrankSinatra and BillieHoliday as well as country like JohnnyCash and HankWilliams. In high school, he was [[TheAce popular and athletic]] before he started to cut class and became a RebelliousSpirit, focused on music.

* CoverVersion: The most accessible song off of ''Starsailor'', "Song to the Siren", has been covered by Music/ThisMortalCoil (who were the first to cover it back in 1983), [[Music/LedZeppelin Robert Plant]], [[Music/RedHotChiliPeppers John Frusciante]], Charlotte Martin and [[Music/RoxyMusic Bryan Ferry]]. It's quite a popular cover.
* DisappearedDad: To Jeff Buckley, who was raised by his mother and stepfather. The song "I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain" is addressed to his stranged ex-wife and son. His son's cover of that song is in on the meta level, both a {{Tearjerker}} and a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
