14. Musician Gram Parsons is “buried” in Metairie
Plenty of famous people are interred in New Orleans cemeteries, but this one bears note because 1) Gram Parsons was a talented musician who tragically died too young, and 2) while he requested to have his ashes buried at Joshua Tree, he was laid to rest in NOLA instead. So, guess what happened? His friends dug up his corpse, burned it, and brought the cremains to Joshua Tree. They were thwarted in their plans, however, and Parsons’s remains (what was left of them) were eventually moved back to Metairie. Isn’t that just insane?
