If you haven't seen Tales from the Tour Bus (both seasons), then I am jealous of you as a first-timer.

Yeah, this is some absolute bullshiat. My favorite of the outlaws.

Wait. Billy Joel needs more than one person to shave him? Talk about pampered.

I think someone even name dropped him in that thread as one of the still living legends. Wonder what the reaper's Fark handle is.

Yeah, the whole album, just a masterpiece.

Goddamit this sucks.  Shaver has written at least half a dozen of my favorite lines in all of songwriting.  Even encapsulated my 20s with just one: "the devil made me do it the first time, the second time I done it on my own."

I hope Ray Wylie Hubbard and Steve Earle are taking their vitamins.  What a shiat week.

Well aware.  You probably know this too but Shaver's son was a fantastic guitarist who OD'd.  A lot these guys seem to pass their demons on to their kids.
