‘Wild Horses’: The Rolling Stones Meet Gram Parsons

Sticky Fingers coverLegend has it that Keith Richards was paling around with onetime Byrd, Flying Burrito Brother and International Submarine Band member, Gram Parsons, during the Stones’ country honking days. Not sure if Mick was there too. Considering Parson’s influence on country music and the acoustic Nashville tuning used on guitar three of the studio original, the facts tends to give the story some credence. But in the end, who knows? From 1971’s Sticky Fingers LP, “Wild Horses” remains a Rolling Stones classic.
