Hello It's Gram
I'm pretty sure I have never seen discussion before, though if it's out there, one of you will let me know.
I am only just realizing Gram Parsons' influence on Todd Rundgren. It's not just that the "Something/Anything?" version of "Hello It's Me" has the same intro and groove as "Hot Burrito #2," or that "Bleeding" from "The Ballad Of Todd Rundgren" is also a twisted rewrite of "Hot Burrito #2," but that most of Rundgren's first two albums, though leaning more toward pop than country, have a similar feel to the Burritos' "Gilded Palace Of Sin."
Maybe it's all in my head, but for now, I'm digging this revelation.
