Happy Birthday

November 5th was two of my favorite artists birthday's. Gram Parsons would have turned 61 yesterday had he still been alive, and Ryan Adams turned 33. Is it just a coincidence these two have the same birthday, or was it part of God's master plan? Both have similar musical styles, as well as both of them being under appreciated and misunderstood at times. One big difference is that Ryan thankfully has seemed to beaten the demons that sadly took Gram from us far too soon. The following is a show at the Seattle Pop Festival of Gram with his band, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and I have also included a couple MP3's of Ryan covering Gram at the bottom of the post. Take some time out to appreciate these two amazing and talented artists.

I'd never heard Ryan Adams' version of "Grievous Angel". Thanks so much. Beautiful thing, ain't it?

It's good work you do, Dan. Solid writing.
