It can't be overstated. But then, he influenced pretty much everybody in the late 60s. There's a reason so many went just a little bit country back then, and it's him. Dylan (Nashville Skyline), The Stones (lots of stuff), The Kinks (Muswell Hillbillies), The Dead (Workingman's Dead), Derek and the Dominoes...The Allmans, and many more...they all took a little from Gram Parsons, and especially his albums with the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Bros. It is such good stuff.
I listened to Dead Flowers today, on a whim, and it hit me sideways that it is basically Gram's voice--to a tee--that Mick was channeling when they recorded this one, not to mention the overall feeling of the song. Of course, Gram himself had a debt to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, but that's another story.
