“I met Gram Parsons in '65, worked and wandered
with him for several years. During our time together in the 'International Submarine Band' we strayed like mavericks, away from the rest of the herd, and ignored the warnings and advice from those who suggested that we should stop singing that awful country & western music and get in-line with the psychedelic '60s. We didn't listen and kept-on going wrong”.
