Semi-True Story

Gram Parsons wasn't a member of "The 27 Club" of dead musicians (Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, et al.) -- he only lived to the ripe old age of 26. But he certainly made some great music before he died in a motel room from too much booze mixed with too much morphine.

What happened right after that may be one of the most interesting of all rock-n-roll stories.

Grand Theft Parsons (not an affiliate link) is not exactly that story. It's just based on that story. But it's still worth watching.
