    Willie Nelson 80 Happy Birthday

    Willie Nelson & Keith Richards do We Had It All


    "It's a nice thing to do for someone on their birthday and I appreciate it," Nelson said in a recent interview aboard his bus. "Usually I like to forget my birthdays as much as possible."

    The hubbub is as much about celebrating Nelson as it has been celebrating with Nelson.

    The singer whose birthday is Monday or Tuesday ? Nelson says April 29, the state of Texas claims April 30 ? occupies a unique space in America's cultural memory. A walking bag of contradictions, he wears his hair long in braids and has a penchant for pot smoking, yet remains arguably conservative country music's greatest songwriter. He's accepted by left and right, black and white and is instantly recognizable to a majority of Americans.

    Happy Birthday Willie

    Country Music is Immortal?


    "We Had It All" is a song written by Troy Seals and Donnie Fritts and originally recorded by Waylon Jennings on his 1973 album, Honky Tonk Heroes. It has since been covered by many artists, including Rita Coolidge, Dobie Gray, Susan Jacks, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, the Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Tina Turner, Conway Twitty, and Dottie West.

    I can hear the wind a blowing in my mind
    Just the way it used to sound through the Georgia pines
    You were there to answer when I called you and me
    Lord knows we had it all.

    Remember how I used to touch your hair
    While reaching for the feeling that was always there
    You were the best thing in my life that I recall
    You and me we had it all.

    I know that we can never live those times again
    So I let my dreams take me back to where we've been
    Then I'll stay with you girl as long as I can
    Oh it was so good oh so good hmm when I was your man.

    Never stop believing in your smile
    Even though you didn't stay it was all worth while
    You were the best thing in my life that I recall
    You and me we had it all. mhm...

    Say no more beautiful?

    Happy Birthday Man!

    Wow! . . . I wasn't aware that he was a member of BHW.

    (Just kidding) . . . Happy Birthday Willie! . . . I believe he is the
    world's oldest pothead. :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Willie is an awake person who is beyond the left-right, two party paradigm.

    He's coming to our County Fair in a couple months if you can believe. 80 years old and still performing. At $50 a ticket to sit in a field I thought it was too pricey but now I think I'll spend the money. I'm sure I'll never have another opportunity to see the legend.

    Ironic George Jones dead today at 81.

    At my door the leaves are falling
    A cold wild wind will come
    Sweethearts walk by together
    And I still miss someone

    George Jones - LIVE "He Stopped Loving Her Today"


    So long dude...

    I saw him in a restaurant in Houston in the early 70's. He was a drunken insufferable prick. Total disrespect for every woman that got near him, his waitress was practically crying.

    Hope the smoke mellowed him out.
