Gram Parsons


Last quote by Gram Parsons

I was fool enough to try to run alongside of him and keep up. That was a tall order. I remember on that European tour – the Survivors in the 80s [Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis] – I set my sight on Jerry Lee. I called him Uncle Gerald. I thought, I want to keep up with Uncle Gerald or see if I can.' I had to surrender after three days. I cannot keep up. How does he do this? We're years apart in

Gram Parsons has most recently been quoted in an article called Marty Stuart on Country Music's Long History of Popping Pills. Gram Parsons said, β€œIt was just a part of the culture, the young musicians' culture. I was drawn to it, and it looked romantic to me. Hank Williams did it. Johnny Cash did it. So it must be cool. I was more into downers than I was uppers, and valium worked. The old guys on the bus took valium to sleep and I thought, Oh that's wonderful.' But valium worked different on me. After I took valium I'd want to stay up for two days and write songs and sing and talk to people. I don't have many regrets in my life. But I have one. I would have stayed sober all along.”. Gram Parsons has been quoted a grand total of 2 times in 1 article.
