Mobius strip of human stupidity: cryinoutloud: here's what Willie used to look like:
This is him today on drugs.

A cautionary tale indeed.

I am shocked that someone could age so much in just 40 or 50 years! Reefer madness, indeed.

They were probably hitting trees, so it's no surprise they hit bridges too.

2and4: stoli n coke: Just read an update. Apparently, the injuries aren't as serious as this article. One band member has a broken ankle, one has a couple of cracked ribs, and one has a pretty badly bruised hip.

Not a fun time, by any means, but at least we're not talking Cliff Burton territory.

Paul English, Willie's drummer, is the band member that suffered a broken hip. Before you assume the injuries aren't serious, keep in mind that Paul is 81 years old.

He first played with Willie in 1955 or so.

If anyone is interested in a long but fascinating read about 1970s country music, including Willie Nelson among others, read here.

This is one of my new favorite quotes, and I will endeavor to use it whenever appropriate:

TOM T. HALLhad his first top ten country hit with "Ballad of Forty Dollars" in 1968. Kris came to town and created an illusion of literacy. Somebody said once that he and I were the only guys in Nashville who could describe Dolly Parton without using our hands.

Willie Nelson is one of those people I don't listen to very often, but then I do throw it on and I always say something like: "Willie Nelson is really farking good. Why don't I own more albums?"

MaudlinMutantMollusk: ♫  Off the road again... ♫


I saw them for the first time last summer at Outside Lands SF and was really impressed by how entertaining WN is. Between he and Sir Paul McCartney they have 150+ years on this planet and still manage to put on great shows.
