It was a dizzying time in 1970- with sex, drugs and rock 'n roll a way of life for young people. The world of music had changed during the 60's, with new styles emerging, fusing, and blending one musical tradition into another. Inventing these new sounds was a new kind of musician, a visionary and a dreamer,who imagined a whole new musical world- and one of them was named Gram Parsons.

In the 30 years since the 26-year-old Gram Parsons died of a drug overdose in a motel room in Joshua Tree National Park, his legend has continued to grow. Something about his great music and passionate songwriting, his compelling personae, his unique fashion sense, and the dramatic stories about his life and death continue to captivate people to this day. Could it be because his mentor was Keith Richards? Could it be because he was responsible for jump-starting the career of Emmy Lou Harris? Could it be because his road manager stole his body and burned it in Joshua Tree State Park, part of a secret pact? Or could it be because of the passionate, loving devotion to his memory and legacy by his only daughter Polly. / Issue 39 - September 2018
