Gram Parsons - celebs died too young

Country singer-songwriter Gram Parsons, who also recorded with The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers, died of a drug overdose on Sept. 19, 1973, in a hotel room in Joshua Tree, California, at the age of 26. Seeking to fulfill Parson's wish to be cremated and spread over Joshua Tree National Monument, close friend Phil Kaufman later stole Parson's body from the Los Angeles International Airport with the help of a friend and set his remains on fire in the park. Since there was no law against stealing a dead body, the pair were only fined $750 for stealing the coffin.
