* Byrds Heckled on Opry 3/15/68 *

Forty-one years ago The Byrds performed on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN to a crowd that included Gram Parson's grandmother and plenty of hecklers (unhappy with their hair-cuts)!

Click on the photo to hear Gram talk about that memorable night.

Also, here's Chris Hillman speaking about Gram joining/leaving The Byrds and his meeting with Keith Richards just before a concert date in South Africa...click on Gram's photo.

You simply can't make this stuff up!
