Una mujer. dijo...

Tres años después del álbum "Grace", el 29 de mayo del 97 Jeff esperaba junto a un amigo la llegada del resto del grupo para comenzar la grabación de su segundo álbum, estaban a la orilla del río Wolf, en Tennessee mientras sonaba "Whole lotta love". Jeff se lanzó al agua totalmente vestido, su amigo se giró para subir el volumen y al volver Jeff ya había desaparecido.

Su cuerpo fue recuperado desnudo cinco días después al final de Beale Street, la legendaria cuna del blues; pudo ser identificado por el característico piercing que llevaba en el ombligo.

Me gustó encontrar tantísimos agradecimientos, parecía una despedida, un testamento. Es increible la cantidad de gente que, directa o indirectamente, interviene en un trabajo, en este caso en un álbum, "Grace" con diez maravillosas canciones.
