From the haze of chemistry and the mist of hangover arose legendary tune made by Gram Parsons and Keith Richards.

This can be found on unofficial (bootleg) record of The Rolling Stones named ULTRA RARE TRAX Vol. 2

You folks do realize that this is more than likely two stoned dudes in a basement with a cassette.recorder and 2 guitars just noodling to this tune and has nothing to do with a Stones recording.

hockleyrambler Why didn't Gram take credit for it ? For one thing, Parsons didn't need money, he was a trust fund baby coming from one of the wealthiest families in Florida. He and Richards were good friends and Jagger felt left out. So as not to create a divide between Richards and Jagger, Parsons thought he'd just bow out. The Stones weren't used to people with integrity, so they just let it stand and put their name on the writing credits. To Parsons, friendship was more important than money, because he had plenty money. Parsons was between bands at that time and being the kind individual he was, was most probably taken advantage of. Jagger's ego was too big to lose his grip on this particular song to someone else.

Interesting that Jagger/Richard composed half of Robert Johnson's songs before they were even born. And that their most memorable originals were when they were with Brian Paul Jones.

Not for nothin but these guys aren't in tune, and if anyone is surprised in this day and age that Mick & Keith didn;t give writing credit to someone else, well. don't be surprised, They're famous for that and for wangling their names onto songs they had nothing to do with composing. Dylan threw out an entire session that they turned up at.

Even if there were no religion, we would still have music to fight over. And so we must laugh ... just to keep from crying

Jagger used this song when Marianne Faithful nealry died of an over dose. I wonder what jagger knows about the systematic destruction of Marianne Faithful? Once "the cutest girl in the world", more famous than the Stones, and a great singer.
