THE OLD MAN AND THE PARSONS: We know Keith Richards was mates with Gram Parsons, but surely making the half man, half cheshire cheese Rolling Stone main draw at a Parsons memorial concert is a little bit like rubbing it in? Why not just go the whole hog and call it 'Gram Parsons: Lightweight.' We're also more than a little amused at Keef playing for a charity gig that's going to help fund assistance for musicians who are dependent on drugs and alcohol. Not that Keef was ever dependent on pills and booze, of course: he could go days sometimes with just one or the other. Also down for the tribute: Norah Jones, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Dwight Yokham, John Doe (assuming he shakes off the hundreds of the lawsuits the RIAA keeps throwing at him), Kathleen Edwards and eastmountainsouth.
