Synopsis Gram Parsons, the melancholic and tormented child of rich, alcoholic southerners, a pioneer of country rock and co-founder of cult group Flying Burrito Brothers. Misunderstood: purists saw him as a hippy and hippies considered him a purist. Emylou Harris and Keith Richards (his friend and mentor in the world of drugs) help him to start up a solo career after a motorbike accident and Parsons records a prescient gem: "Grievous Angel". He didn’t get to see it published, he died in 1973 of an overdose. His friends stole the body so that he wasn’t buried in the family pantheon; Parsons had left it in written that he wanted to rest as ashes in the desert. He was 27, just as some other excellent corpses: Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain.
