Hickory Wind: The Life and Times of Graham Parsons Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Newly updated for the 25th anniversary of his death: the fast life and mysterious death of Gram Parsons, country rock's ill-fated pioneer.
