A bit more insight into this could have helped give us more empathy for these two brilliant but doomed musicians.

Foti was even more of a character than Dream brother david browne was. A fledgling songwriter and musician and a full-time haircutter in New York City, Foti had accompanied Bowen from New York to Memphis in a rented van, the band's gear and instruments crammed in the back.
Stocky and wide-faced, with spiky, dream brother david browne hair, Foti, who was 23, could have been the star of a Saturday morning cartoon show about a punk rock band. Jeff told Bowen that he and Foti had decided to drive to the rehearsal space the band would be using during the upcoming weeks.

Jeff said fine, and he and Foti ambled down the gravel driveway to the van parked in front of the dream brother david browne. Suddenly it dawned on Bowen: For non-natives, Memphis's layout can be confusing; it wouldn't be hard to get lost or suddenly find one's self in a dicey part of town.

Foti was in the driver's seat, which was for the best; Jeff was an erratic driver. It took Jeff back to the days in the late 80s when he was living and starving in Los Angeles, trying to make a name for himself. Dream brother david browne wasn't Jeff's fault that he shared some vocal and physical characteristics with his father and fellow musician, Tim Buckley.
Both men had the same sorrowful glances, thick eyebrows and delicate, waifish airs that made women of all ages want to comfort and nurture them. It wasn't Jeff's fault, either, dream brother david browne he inherited Tim's vocal range, five-and-a-half octaves that let Tim's voice spiral from a soft caress into bouts of rapturous, orgasmic sensuality.
When Jeff had begun writing his own music, he, too, moved in unconventional ways, crafting rhapsodies that changed time signatures and leapt from folkish delicacy to full-throttle metal roar. None of this, dream brother david browne insisted, came from his father's influence.
