Gram Parson died 35 years ago today. Strangely enough, I was watching Gimme Shelter last weekend, which my first exposure to Parsons.

When I was 12 my stepfather at the time sat me down and we watched the documentary. He was a lot more excited about explaining who the Flying Burrito Brothers were than about explaining to me about the impact Altamont had on society. And that always stuck with me.

So in honor of Gram I thought I’d post some music this morning. And since I am currently sitting here waiting for them to finish work on my car, I got nothing but time. Yes, I do realize nobody that reads this on any sort of regular basis actually likes my taste in music, but I’m posting anyway:

Coffee Creek : Drug Store Truck Drivin’ Man

Uncle Tupelo : Blue Eyes

Gram Parsons : Ooh Las Vegas

Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams (Sessions) : Return of the Grievous Angel

Gram Parsons : Wild Horses

Son Volt: Song For You
