Tim Buckley: Talking In Tongues

Steve Turner, MOJO, July 1995

IF TIM BUCKLEY was alive today I'd probably get in touch with him to apologise. You probably don’t remember me, I'd say, but I interviewed you in a Hollywood rehearsal studio in September 1972 when you were just getting ready to go on the road supporting Frank Zappa. The fact is I never did write a story based on that encounter and so your then-new album, Greetings From LA, didn’t get the plug you may have wanted.

Total word count of piece: 1864
