>Michael Gira was born in Los Angeles in 1954. His childhood was, by all accounts, awful. His mother was an alcoholic, and several sources claim he often took care of a younger brother. While we discuss the parallels between the never-ending crescendos of Neil Diamond and Swans, I ask if his parents listened to much music. He simply says, “No… They weren’t around much.”

>After getting arrested in California for petty crimes and risking being placed in a juvenile hall, Gira was taken by his father to Germany, where he worked in a tool factory. When his father insisted he go to school instead, Gira hitchhiked across Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey and Israel. He had already run away once, when he was 15, and went to Belgium to watch the Woodstock-like Actuel Festival. There, Gira saw—besides Yes, “who were actually pretty great”—Frank Zappa’s infamous sit-in with Pink Floyd.

>Gira’s second time away from home was the one that took. He ended up in Israel, the one place you could go with no money. Then…jail. Adult jail. For selling bricks of hash. A British prison in Jerusalem for a few months, until he was let out and inexplicably sent back in.

>“I was almost raped once,” he says, “but luckily there were older hippies there to look out for me… One thing I did was read a whole fucking lot.”

>He saw tortured Palestinians (“a doctor, a really nice guy”) come and go. Finally one cellmate contacted a lawyer, who got him released, and Gira went to work shoveling dust in a copper mine.

>Chris Palko was born in Würzburg, Germany, to American parents. His father was stationed on a West German military base as a member of the military police.[1] Palko lived there until the age of four when his father was dishonorably discharged for selling and using heroin, and the family was sent back to the United States where they lived in Middletown, New York. His father would often force Palko to pull homemade tourniquets around his arm as he injected heroin. At the age of eight, Palko's father was arrested during a standoff with state troopers after threatening his family with a shotgun.[2][3] By the time Palko was expelled from high school, his mother had remarried twice, and he was beaten by his stepfather Frank. Palko began using PCP, cocaine, LSD, cannabis and alcohol, and was sent to live with his uncle on a German military base, where he was beaten and sent home after a year.[3]

>Palko was arrested several times for drug possession and fighting in the streets. When he faced jail time for violating probation, his mother convinced the judge that he was mentally unstable, and he was sent to the Stony Lodge psychiatric hospital for a two-week evaluation. He stayed in the hospital for sixteen months, where he was a part of a small group used to test fluoxetine, commonly used in Prozac.[3][4] After being misdiagnosed and placed on the drug, he became suicidal and made several attempts to kill himself, including hanging himself with his shoelaces and saving his lithium (medication) dose for a month before ingesting all of them at once.[2][3]

I'm not convinced that he lost his mind. Although the music on his solo records are certainly erratic (always a trait of Barrett's music; it's what made him a psychedelic pioneer), the lyrics have a biting lucidity and very clear awareness of both his immediate environment and the human condition.

Jeff Buckley. Read up on him and then read the story behind Dream Brother. Adds a layer to it.

the gist, from wikipedia: it was written as an urge for a friend of his, Chris Dowd of Fishbone fame, not walking out on his pregnant girlfriend in a similar way to Buckley's own father, Tim Buckley, as evidenced in the verses, "Don't be like the one who made me so old/Don't be like the one who left behind his name/'Cause they're waiting for you like I waited for mine/And nobody ever came".
