C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Tim Buckley's "Song To The Siren"

(guest blogged by Howie Klein)

Tim Buckley showed up in NY when I was in college. He wasn't famous. He was with Jackson Browne, who also wasn't famous. We met at a Velvet Underground show at the Exploding Plastic Inevitable. They came back and spent a few weeks at my college after the show. Jackson wound up as lead singer, for a few days at least, of the Soft White Underbelly.
