The best-known version of this song, "Wild Horses," is by The Stones, of course. However, the song was originally given to Gram Parsons by Keith Richards as a gift.
Gram...what can I say about him? He had the voice of an angel and the soul of a tortured poet. His life was a Tennessee Williams play. He loved his drink and his drugs and American music in its purest forms. His was a shattered soul, his voice about hopeful unreasonable love, and those hopes dashed on the ground.
He was far too beautiful for this world.
