Willie & Larry ...


Willie, the epitome of cool. Saw the best interview with Willie Nelson on Larry King Friday night. I have some serious Willie Nelson memories from growing up. My dad was a big fan and I remember him playing along with the songs on his guitar all the time. This, along with my mom constantly playing Motown and hearing my older cousins play Rush and Judas Priest, I attest to my eccentric choice in musical playlists today. But that's another post. It's amazing to think that Willie will be 77 at the end of this month and is still touring (in a bio-diesel bus, nice) and apparently having the time of his life–good for him! Plus, it was funny to watch Larry act like an overly excited goofy, teenager after asking Willie if he had smoked pot that day to which Willie responded "yeah."

Quick Willie Nelson top three songs/covers (in no particular order) ... "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain," "Georgia On My Mind," and "All Of Me." And don't forget he wrote the ace song "Crazy" for the amazing Patsy Cline.

Overall the weekend was great and ended with me eating about 1/3 of Brownie Batter from the carton. Ever since my friend Heather introduced me to it years ago I've been addicted! How about you? Any memorable moments this weekend?

I love Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, Mamas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys and Always On My Mind. Willie's definitely in my top 3, all time fave artists.
