"In May of 1996, Jeff was playing bass with Nathan Larson's band Mind Science Of The Mind. They stopped by the radio station to record an interview, but Jeff opted out and decided to hang out with me for about an hour in the on-air studio. Every time I did a break I said I was 'Live in the studio with Jeff Buckley,' but he refused to speak on-air the whole time he was there. We probably shared more personal stuff that day than we'd ever shared before, but he wouldn't say one word on the radio. During one break he put his face beside mine and made beatbox noises into the microphone the whole time I spoke, and when I said, 'Jeff Buckley ladies and gentlemen' he was completely silent. That story describes him really well, and maybe says something about what kind of guy would jump into the Mississippi River in the middle of the night with all of his clothes on. He was following his own muse and there was always something enigmatic about him. He's one of the guys I miss every time I see his picture."

From 1992-2000 and from 2002-2007 Johnny Riggs worked as a DJ at Baltimore/Washington's leading alternative rock radio station, WHFS (and on XM Radio from 2000-2002). He was also in the band Cinnamon Toast.

Being in a band and also a popular DJ at a beloved area radio station gave him access to a wide range of "alternative" (#whateverthatmeans) artists. Equipped with a Polaroid Captiva, he used that access to take these. He has been shooting Polaroids since he was 7 years old.
