Just a few weeks now, and this is what I'm looking forward to.
Willie Nelson is 77 years old, still performing like a rock star, still touring like a rock star, and while he's on the road he still drags his little sister Bobbie with him. Bobbie is only 81, and for the forthcoming European tour, she's shipping her own piano across from the US.
Willie Nelson and Family, and the family tag means what they consider family, it's the band that has been together since before Outlaw Country became popular.
Willie's long time drummer, Paul English, who I've had the pleasure to meet a couple of times, has recently suffered a minor stroke, so I hope he'll have the sense to pass on this tour, but these guys just live on the road, giving pleasure to fans like me, so I will not be surprised to see Paul at the shows.
Not that I have a serious fanaticism about anything in particular, but if you don't like Willie, it might be a good idea to avoid my blog for a few weeks. Although, I'd have to ask, WHY?
And offer a few morsels of incentive to stay with me. Such as:
Yun's aa fir enoo,
mair sharn eftir.
