When the heck is this movie coming to Montreal? A few years back I got onto a major Flying Burrito Brothers/Gram Parsons kick. They’re one of those artists who may not have been as popular as their contemporaries but were just as, if not more, influential. “Country Rock” or “alt country” or whatever you want to call it, may not have existed if Parsons hadn’t been there.
Insurgent Country has a decent bit of info on Parsons which includes a link to the strange story of his death on which the film is based (his body was stolen by his friends in an effort to fulfill his wish that he be cremated at Joshua Tree Park).
