Synopsis: Nearly 20 years after his death, the style of Gram Parsons echoes through music from the Rolling Stones to the Grateful Dead. Parsons rode to fame with the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, and now his still-legendary exploits are revealed in this "skillfully drawn portrait, tragic and absorbing" (Kirkus Reviews). 8-page photo insert.

From the Publisher: "The cream of the crop [of rock books] ... Fong-Torres writes a fan's appreciation of Parsons that does not skimp on the harsh truth." -Steve Morse, THE BOSTON GLOBE

"A remarkable job of tracking the life of Mr. Parsons... The writing is clear and the tales ring true as he follows a seminal figure of country rock from his birth into a citrus-moneyed family in Winter Haven, Florida, to his drug-related death in the high desert town of Joshua Tree, California." --ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION

"A saddening piece of reading, but one which members of Parsons' large cult will find essential."

-MUSICIAN magazine

"The first clear picture of a musical genius." --SOUTH BEND TRIBUNE (Indiana)

Book Description Atria, 1991. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Corner of flyleaf clipped, previous owner's embosssing on flyleaf, light soiling. Dust jacket wrapped in mylar. Delivery confirmation tracking number provided. ; 1.2 x 9.5 x 6.5 Inches; Gram Parons lived hard and died young, and left behind a musical legacy that has influenced generations of rock and country legends. Ben Fong-Torres's moving account of his story--from his poor-little-rich-kid childhood; through his seminal time with the Byrds and his own bands, the Flying Burrito Brothers and the Fallen Angels; to days and nights spent with the likes of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Emmylou Harris--is a classic of rock biography. This newly expanded edition updates the text and discograph, adds rare new photographs, and concludes with an intriguing epilogue that answers some lingering questions about Gram's untimely death--and raised a few more.
