American songwriter, guitarist, singer composer, lyricist, performing and recording artist. Buckley moved to southern California at the age of eight with his family after being raised in N.Y. and biked across the country as a teen. After performing in bands at clubs, he was spotted by Frank Zappa's manager, Herb Cohen, who offered him a recording deal.

His debut album, October 1966, was warmly received followed by a feature in a Leonard Bernstein documentary. From 1968, Buckley made several TV appearances, toured the U.K. and in 1971 he withdrew from the music industry for a year. In 1972, he worked as a chauffeur and taxi driver and composed a few hits for the label under Frank Zappa and Herb Cohen. A European tour in 1974 was not well received and he returned to the U.S. in 1975 making a double album with music for a movie and screenplay.

Buckley died of a drug cocktail of heroin and morphine, 6/29/1975, that he had taken at a friends house believing that it was cocaine, Santa Monica, CA.
