Country music is about broken love affairs, prostitution, addiction, poverty and being on the wrong side of the law. In short, it's the story of the rural working class, driven by poverty to the alien surroundings of the big city. These days, such stories are not so welcome by the mass media, which wants to present the idea that Capitalism has made all of our dreams come true.

Gram Parsons didn't exactly have the usual country music background, having been born into a well off family and only becoming interested in country music while he attended Harvard Collage. However, he has been given a kind of mystical status in the country hall of fame, and certainly lived and died the country music lifestyle , dying of an overdose in 1973 at only 26 years of age.

I went to see Donavan in a place called Northampton Massachusetts about 1988.

Would you give up your kids to turn back the clock?
I suppose having kids is the only real way to turn back the clock. But its hard to look at what we have now and not think that the past was certainly better - particularly when it comes to music.
