i'd rather live for 26 years than be alive for 100

gram parsons loved music and the desert. he would take LSD and look for UFOs at Joshua Tree for days at a time. at age 26, he died there from an alcohol/morphine overdose. i think he knew he'd die there b/c he mentioned he wanted his ashes to be spread over Cap Rock.

his friends stole his body from his fam at the airport and drove it to Joshua Tree. they lit his coffin on fire. the rest of his stash was also dispersed in the desert. at age 26, gram died b/c he'd already found everything he needed - music, nature, drugs, friends.
