This day in music:
It was 42 years ago today, that Gram Parsons passed on at the age of twenty six. To fulfill his funeral wishes, some close friends hijacked his body from the L.A. airport, and cremated it in Joshua Tree National Park. Due to the fact that were no laws regarding theft of a dead body, Parsons' friends only faced a fine 0f $750.00 for stealing a coffin.
THAT'S ROCK 'N' ROLL, MAN!
