    DVD Review - Gram Parsons: Fallen Angel

    By Tracy M. Rogers

    The legend of Gram Parsons was cemented almost immediately after his
    death in 1973 when tour manager and friend Phil Kaufman stole his body
    from the Los Angeles International Airport and attempted to cremate it
    in Joshua Tree National Park. The myth and mystery surrounding that
    unfortunate incident long have overshadowed Parsons' life and his music,
    both of which have had a significant impact upon an array of
    contemporary country and alt-country artists. In his documentary Gram
    Parsons: Fallen Angel, German director Gandulf Hennig takes a
    chronological approach to telling Parsons' story. He effectively
    explores Parsons' musical journey, his influences, his battles with
    drugs and alcohol, and his untimely and truly tragic death, and in the
    process, he creates a portrait of Parsons that digs deeper than anything
    that has come before it.
