    Today is Willie Nelson's 80th Birthday.

    Here is a picture of me and Willie in the Broken Spoke in Austin in the spring of 1968, 45 years ago. I was 18 and he was 35. Neither of us had gone hippie yet. If you look closely, we are both Hookin' the Horns.

    AWESOME!

    I have Broken Spoke stories and I have a Willie story or two as well...but I do not have a Broken Spoke Willie story. You win!

    neat! i grew up hating the sound of that man's voice, because my Granddad would blast his music everytime i'd visit. later in life, found out Granddad had terminal cancer, and had not yet seen Willie in concert. me, Dad, and Granddad had the most awesome time at Willie's concert, and got to meet him afterward.

    seeing a dying Korean War badass laughing and goofing with his favorite musician made me see Willie in a whole new light. been to 3 more of his concerts since, and call myself a fan now.
