I listened to the whole thing again a little while ago--it's that good.

Must belabor my point though about Hillman and Parsons. Although Hillman makes a big point of describing how much credit he deserves for songs like Sin City, Wheels (saying something like I had to wake Gram up for the second verse of Sin City which [second verse] never made much sense and then seeming to take credit for having written not only the first verse but also the chorus ((didn't say that but left you to think it; it should have been Sneaky Chris instead of Sneaky Pete))). And no Gram around to defend himself.
It was that good. I was planning on watching it in 20 minute increments because i find it hard to pay attention for too long but i watched it all the way through because it was so interesting. I wonder if Artimus would recognize some of the tv shows Hillman was talking about because he lived in LA around the same time. You picked out all the part where i felt uneasy, the Gene Clark not being well read, the Sin City part, and the "hired hand" stuff. I must say i was expecting worse because i thought Hillman was much more petty in the book about Gram Parsons.

I can't believe they were waving in the back for him to wrap it up! They should've let him keep talking til he wanted to stop and then edit it or something.

It's a pet peeve of mine when they have a Q and A session and you can't hear the question. How the hell are you supposed to know what he's talking about! I wanted to hear what the exact question was about Pearl Jam singing So You Wanna Be A Rock-N-Roll Star and the part about losing the melody, and the follow up.

What was with the tiny water glass? Was he sipping vodka or something?

You were talking about Country Western clothing. I remember when my italian cousins came over and we drove to Aurora Colorado to visit my older sister because my parents had no idea what to do with them for so long a time. Well since my relatives from Italy have horses and are into horseback riding we went to a huge country western store in Denver, i forgot the name but it was like the size of a big Wal Mart. They ended up buying a bunch of stuff, cowboy themed stuff is big for italians.
