    You know what , I really dont like country music but Willie is the only dude I have ever liked. He is real, there is no bullshit with Willie. No fancy guitars, no flashy clothes. And he always seems to want to jam with other real musicians that arent bullshit either. I really like it when he and Ray Charles got together.

    I've seen the red headed stranger twice. Excellent shows. Willie is great. I love Whiskey River and Angel flying too close to the ground. I would love to party with him.

    Love Willie!


    I just downloaded a great soundboard recording of his from 97' over at www.dimeadozen.org --It's just him and his guitar! I love how he sings/talks and plays his plunky guitar runs

    favorite songs of his?

    "Nightlife"
    "Whiskey River"

    I haven't partied with him, but he's about the only "star" that I've ever really wanted to hang with.

    I'd love to sit in the back of his bus, smoke joints, and play guitar with him

    I'll be seeing him next month at Farm Aid

    Default No jail for Willie Nelson on drug charge

    ST. MARTINVILLE, La. - Willie Nelson and his tour manager were spared jail time Tuesday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession.

    Nelson and tour manager David Anderson, along with Nelson's sister, Bobbie Nelson, and two drivers, were issued citations on Sept. 18 after state troopers said they found marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms on the country legend's tour bus during a commercial-vehicle inspection on Interstate 10.

    State District Judge Paul deMahy fined Nelson and Anderson $1,024 each and put both on probation for six months. As part of a plea agreement, the citation against Bobbie Nelson was dismissed.

    St. Martin Parish Assistant District Attorney Chester Cedars said he dismissed the citations against the two drivers because there was no indication they "had anything to do with the contraband."

    Word spread quickly that Nelson was in this small southern Louisiana town, and a crowd of about 25 fans gathered outside to wait for the entertainer after his brief court appearance. When he emerged, Nelson obliged, shaking hands, signing scraps of paper and posing for photographs.

    "Thank y'all," he said, waving as he climbed into a waiting car.

    What about the 'shrooms? Wonder how they made that one go away?

    I've always questioned just how much the guy smokes. You don't see too many lifelong tokers in their 70's, so I think it is interesting that he's lived this long without some serious health issues. Same with Hank Jr, I don't think he's had nearly as much to drink in the last 20 years as his image would have us believe. But back in the mid-70's to mid-80's, that joker was feelin' good n' rowdy.

    Default Willie Nelson

    Last night, Willie Nelson and Family in Columbus, Ohio. Hands down, one of the most enjoyable shows I have attended in a long, long time. An American Institution. Truly an incredible evening!

    VH1 storyteller performance with Johnny Cash??
    one word: AWESOME!

    What kind of JACKASS state trooper would follow through on the citation,
    once he realized who and what it was for?

    Are you kidding me?"

    To the idiot asswipe (storm)Trooper: You're a dick who needs his ass kicked.

    You don't cite Willie for weed...fucking prick. Someone should smack that cunt in the mouth...I hope his wife didn't give him any pussy for months after that....I hope she went and fucked his best friend while listening to Willie's records.

    Whiskey River
    Good Hearted Woman
    Funny How Time Slips Away
    Georgia On my Mind
    Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain
    Angel Flying Too Close To the Ground
    Me and Bobby McGhee
    Beer For Horses
    Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys
    Always On My Mind
    On the Raod Again
    To All the Girls I've Loved Before
    Crazy

    I could go on and on.....
