    Perhaps The Dead don't belong in this thread but they need a home and this is the best I could find.

    David Crosby and Graham Nash singing Stephen Still's song "Find The Cost Of Freedom " with David Gilmour. from David Gilmour's DVD Remember That Night , live at the Royal Albert Hall.
    I have that DVD, it's great. When everybody's gone here @ mi casa I put it on the surround system and crank it to 11.

    Have you listened to Roger Water's newest album("Is This The Life We Really Want?") Crest? If so, thoughts?

    I've got to say I found "Is This The Life We Really Want?" uninspiring. There were no real tunes. One accepts the lyrics are always going to be depressing with Waters and that's okay if there's a good melody to put his message across with but sadly I just found snippets sounding like parts of 'Dogs' from 'Animals' and the usual clips of spoken speech.
    It also needed some majestic guitar like Gilmour used to provide but without a good melody line even that wouldn't help imo. It's a shame because I love Waters' interviews, he's an intelligent man who cares about humanity, one of the greatest rock figures in the world.
    It needs some menace and foot tapping passion, ie in 'Sheep

    ^I'd have to agree with your verdict...mostly. However I did like the lyrics throughout and thought them to be appropriate for these times. With Roger its never been about his great singing voice and aging isn't helping him in that department. Yes I caught reminders of Animals too.

    Sheep from Animals is timeless...

    Fred wrote this but Harry Nilsson had a massive hit with it.

    Yes it is, I really like it too. It must be something he'd done fairly recently as I'd never heard it before the day I posted the video.

    The somewhat 'strained' pose here was, according to Elvis Costello, something to do with the fact that George had a gun on him.

    Possibly apochr....


    Ernmm.. untrue.

    Elvis sounds a bit uncomfortable.


    Anyway..Classic George Jones...

    You can't hide from the Lord's burning rain! It seems like this whole town's insane
    In loving homage to the inventor of alt-country, Ingram Cecil Connor III



    In the late 1960s, Parsons became enamored with Joshua Tree National Monument (now Joshua Tree National Park) in southeastern California. After splitting from Burrell, Parsons would frequently spend his weekends in the area with Margaret Fisher and Phil Kaufman. Parsons was scheduled to begin another tour in October 1973. Parsons decided to go on one more excursion before this tour. Accompanying him were Fisher, personal assistant Michael Martin, and Dale McElroy, Martin's girlfriend.

    Less than two days after arriving at the Joshua Tree Inn in Room #8, Parsons was discovered unresponsive in his bedroom. Attempts to revive him failed and death was officially pronounced at 12:15 am on September 19, 1973 at Hi-Desert Memorial Hospital. Parsons was 26 years old at the time of his death and the official cause of death was an overdose of morphine and alcohol. According to Fisher in the 2005 biography Grievous Angel: An Intimate Biography of Gram Parsons, the amount of morphine consumed by Parsons would be lethal to three regular users and thus he had likely overestimated his tolerance considering his experience with opiates. Keith Richards, a close friend of Parsons, stated in the 2004 documentary film Fallen Angel that Parsons understood the danger of combining opiates and alcohol, and thus should have known better. Upon Parsons' death, Fisher and McElroy were returned to Los Angeles by Kaufman, who dispersed the remnants of Parsons' drugs in the desert.

    Parsons' body disappeared from the Los Angeles International Airport where it was being readied to be shipped to Louisiana for burial. Before his death, Parsons stated that he wanted his body cremated at Joshua Tree and his ashes spread over Cap Rock, a prominent natural feature there; however, Parsons' stepfather organized a private ceremony back in New Orleans and neglected to invite any of his friends from the music industry. Two accounts state that Bob Parsons stood to inherit Gram's share of his grandfather's estate if he could prove that Gram was a resident of Louisiana, explaining his eagerness to have him buried there.

    To fulfill Parsons' funeral wishes, Kaufman and a friend stole his body from the airport and in a borrowed hearse, they drove it to Joshua Tree. Upon reaching the Cap Rock section of the park, they attempted to cremate Parsons' corpse by pouring five gallons of gasoline into the open coffin and throwing a lit match inside. What resulted was an enormous fireball. The police gave chase but, as one account puts it, "were encumbered by sobriety," and the men escaped. The two were arrested several days later. Since there was no law against stealing a dead body, they were only fined $750 for stealing the coffin and were not prosecuted for leaving 35 pounds of his charred remains in the desert. Parsons's body, what remained of it, was eventually buried in Garden of Memories Cemetery in Metairie, Louisiana.

    The site of Parsons' cremation was marked by a small concrete slab and was presided over by a large rock flake known to rock climbers as The Gram Parsons Memorial Hand Traverse. The slab has since been removed by the U.S. National Park Service, and relocated to the Joshua Tree Inn. There is no monument at Cap Rock noting Parsons' cremation at the site. Joshua Tree park guides are given the option to tell the story of Parsons' cremation during tours, but there is no mention of the act in official maps or brochures. Fans regularly assemble simple rock structures and writings on the rock, which the park service sand blasts to remove from time to time.
