    Gram Parsons: A Stolen Body, Heroin, More Rolling Stones and Cosmic American Music

    Gram Parsons is one of the most influential musicians in rock ‘n’ roll that you’ve maybe never heard of. He created a form of music that has been copied by everyone from the Eagles to Ryan Adams. He directly influenced the Rolling Stones’ greatest album, possibly the greatest rock ‘n’ roll album of all time, Exile on Main Street. And when he died his body was stolen and unceremoniously disposed of. This is the story of Gram Parsons' life, death and very strange aftermath.

Are you a music geek?

I've been a music geek for years. I love, not only the music but the mythology and stories behind these bands too. The album artwork, fashion,subcultures, lyrics and of course, the general debauchery and madness that seems to lie at the heart of all great music.

And Disgraceland captures that feeling perfectly. The writing and production values are top notch but it's Jake Brennan's masterful delivery that makes this podcast stand head and shoulders above all others.

So if you are a music geek, I urge you to subscribe and listen to Disgraceland, you will not be disappointed.

40% story: 60% sophomoric prose

Used to be good.

This podcast started out well telling good stories, then unfortunatley the presenter started indulging himself in these painfully overwritten sections “morrison felt that he had become a vortex of creativity with him in the middle and the beatniks swirling around him in a miasma of sixties soup” horsecrap like this. Why couldnt he just stick with the facts and let the lives of these people speak for themselves instead of waffling on and on. No basis in real fact to any of the waffle and if its supposed to convey atmosphere then it fails miserably in this.
