One of the odder rock and roll star death stories was that of Gram Parsons. It wasn't so much his death that was odd, but what happened after he died.
The death of Gram Parsons was overshadowed by the death the following day of a much more well-known artist, Jim Croce, who died in a plane crash. Gram Parson's impact on music, particularly country rock and country has been substantial as many artists cite his influence in their work.
