This book is the definitive biography of country star Gram Parsons, and was published to very positive reviews in 2002 by Helter Skelter. Parsons was a contradiction in some respects. Most country stars are born in poverty, but Parsons was born to a wealthy family. He briefly studied Theology at Harvard, but embarked on a life of drink and drugs that was to destroy him. He sold few records during his life, but his influence has been enormous even though he died at only 26. U2, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty and more are avowed fans of a man whose voice was truly that of God's Own Singer. This edition has been revised and updated and most importantly contains an exclusive interview with Michael Martin who, along with Phil Kaufman, stole Parsons' dead body and cremated it at the Joshua Tree in accordance with the singer's wishes. It really is a gripping read. The beautiful new cover is a painting by renowned artist and musician Jon Langford.
