Just two days live on the Web, and already, the hardcore Snobs are heating things up at The Nitpicker’s Corner, with feverish arguments over who “invented country rock.” (In the book, we attribute the genre to Gram Parsons. Others take deep umbrage at this assertion and champion Gene Clark, Chris Hillman, Michael Nesmith, Rick Nelson, and just about every musician who played L.A.’s The Troubadour in 1961-66.)
