Gram Parsons - Fallen Angel DVD
Los Angeles - FALLEN ANGEL - a documentary by producer/director
Gandulf Hennig and co-writer Sid Griffin - provides a revealing
account of Gram Parsons' life and the ongoing influence
of his music.
Deflating many of the myths that have grown over the years
about Parsons' hedonistic lifestyle, the film retraces the
life of this Florida-born, Georgia-raised heir to a million-dollar
orange juice fortune through his early days as a musician
and his rise as a country-rock icon to his tragic death
from an overdose of drugs and alcohol at the age of 26.
The documentary features music and performances from Parsons'
groundbreaking career with The International Submarine Band,
The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, as well as his highly
acclaimed solo albums. Also included are interviews with
family, friends and fellow musicians telling personal stories
about Parsons and discussing his musical legacy.
