Greasy Little Punks And Their Electrified Guitars, Wiggling Around and Grunting. Howling!

Music on CD

Time in a Bottle: Jim Croce's greatest love songs by Jim Croce. Plane wreck death? I don't recall.

GP/Grievous Angel by Gram Parsons. Parsons was supposed to be highly influential in the late '60s and early '70s by mixing country and rock. His musician pals dug his sound and went on to man popular and big selling bands. Parsons killed himself with booze and drugs.

Band of Gypsys by Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix killed himself with drugs, too.

The Soft Parade by The Doors. Also dead by drugs. This album does not have any famous tunes.

Time Out of Mind by Bob Dylan. Dylan pre- and post-dates all those dead guys. I saw him play in Champaign, IL last fall. His guitarist was Charlie Sexton. Sexton was a guitar prodigy in Texas and had this tune rotate on MTV for a time in about 1985.
