Be Here to Love Me

There have been several touching, documentary portraits of musicians that are known both for their significant contributions to the world of music and for their personal struggles. Fans of cult artists like Daniel Johnston (The Devil and Daniel Johnston), Gram Parsons (Gram Parsons, Fallen Angel) and Harry Nilsson (Who is Harry Nilsson: And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him?) will surely want to watch Be Here to Love Me, the story of influential troubadour Townes Van Zandt. This is a wonderful introduction to Van Zandt’s story and one that shouldn’t be ignored if you enjoy the music of country and folk artists like Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Guy Clark and Steve Earle.


Be here to love me


Thanks for the recommendation. I'm looking forward to watching this. If you enjoy the music of Gram Parsons, be sure to check out the album Return of the Grievous Angel: A Tribute to Gram Parsons featuring Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Whiskeytown, Gillian Welch and many others. Excellent!
