Gram Parsons – Stage Worn and Owned Shirt
A shirt owned and worn on stage by the legendary Gram Parsons. We are huge Gram Parsons fans, and feel honored to offer this historic collectible–a shirt Parsons wore during his stint in the groundbreaking International Submarine Band, and later gave to his band mate and lifelong friend, John Nuese. Nuese is credited as being the person who convinced Parsons to pursue country rock (see the Submarine Band page on Wikipedia for more on Nuese and Parsons : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_International_Submarine_Band ) We obtained this directly from John Nuese, who told us Parsons gave him the shirt during the Submarine Band days, as Parsons had much more clothing suitable for stage wear than he did. Nuese's kept this and a few other items Gram had given him as reminders of his beloved friend. Nuese can be seen in the documentary "Fallen Angel: Gram Parsons" and is mentioned in ever book about Parsons. The shirt, made by F.R. Tripler & Co. of New York is in overall excellent condition, and has Nuese's name written inside the collar in fabric pen. A copy of Nuese's letter of authenticity accompanies this shirt. As with everything we offer, guaranteed authentic for life.
