Dead, Not Buried

Townes Van Zandt left behind great songs for people to fight over

"I live day to day without giving any thought to what might be owed to me," he says from his home in Austin. "The biggest thing that helps me to that place is Townes' music, in place of a dead father. I can't imagine there's anything more valuable out there than that. I feel the power of truth when I walk in there and am around these people. They shiver and scoot around like vermin or snakes, and I have the power to look in their eyes. I would be lying to say I don't give a damn about it, but you can live and make your brain focus on just that or you can enjoy a sunny day."

Everyone says they're fighting for the sake of Van Zandt's songs. Are they really?

If Townes Van Zandt were alive today, even he might not know what belongs to him anymore.
