They did not know each other, but they were so alike. They both died tragically young and they both soared to the heights of what music can do. Tim through pushing the extremes of his voice and Jeff by actually having the success that his father never had. This is a brief biography and a deep listen to some of the most chilling music of the last fifty years.

There's no crowds around me, but when I get to thinkin' 'bout the old days, when love was here to stay, I wonder if we'd ever tried... Oh, what I'd give to hold him.
This is our last embrace. Must I dream and always see your face? Why can't we overcome this wall? Well, maybe it's just because I didn't know you at all.
