WHISKEY RIVER and WILLIE NELSON!


Willie Nelson’s Guitar
WILLIE NESLON
just strolled on stage with his ole’ friends
and
picked up that ole friend
of his
and
“WHISKEY RIVER TOOK OUR MINDS”
into a night of
remarkable
Willie!
It was a night of memories, of watching Willie and being amazed at his genius, and OMG, his mastery through the years…
He’s been called a modern day prophet
since I can remember,
his way with words
and
his voice
his storytelling through that guitar and ability to tell stories that leave you wanting more.
Last night and 78 years old now
was no exception!
His voice powerful
and his carpel tunnel surgery seems to have made his skills on that guitar better than ever
as he threw some notes and picked that guitar to give it
the worn look and hole he shows proudly!
His sister Bobbie ran across those ivories on that piano
like she did in her youth
wearing her signature hat
and
taking her place at the piano!
Willie would turn to her and then
nod his head…
Oh boy would she then just take off on those keys
and do much more than
“tickle the ivories”
she made them talk to you!
She took my breath away
each time
she took command of the stage and the audience
as they went wild listening to her!
AND
of course there was
Mickey Rafeal the harmonica player!!!
“Oh how I love some Mickey”
and remember with such fun
all those years they would tour in DC
and times behind stage where I would just
enjoy so much
and that Mickey is still just as fierce now as he was then!
He is just off the chain remarkable
and can make that juice harp
do things that take your heart
and
Willie’s words to new depths of understanding!
Willie
with Paul English on the Drums
Oh what a night,
and
he didn’t give you time to take a breath
as
he moved from one song and one setting that guitar on fire
to
the next!
The audience were like jumping jacks
on their feet to show him how much he is loved
how much his music is appreciated through the years
and
the hoops and hollers and whistles with each beginning strike of a chord or each sound of the piano, harmonica
or
beat of the drum
Willie knew
that most of those there
“appreciated and have sat in many a bar, a home, a boat”
and
listened and been there with him through the years!
And
he played/sang right up until he left the building!
Enjoy
“You Don’t Think I’m Funny Anymore”
cos’
Willie had a blast singin it last night!
hahaha
It was a night filled of Willie and his family! And a night of great friends together, to celebrate the wonder of Willie and relive some memories that are just too good to write about!
When you have the time
and
want to hear a modern day prophet tell of life
of
ups/downs/arounds
and
with such poetry in living
take a journey of musical wonder
through the years of
Willie Nelson!
He’s not getting any older I’ve decided
he’s just
WILLIE NELSON
and
last night they were selling all sorts of things of his merchandise that folks were purchasing like crazy.
The one thing I think is a darn good idea said this:
WILLIE NELSON FOR PRESIDENT 2012
PAUL ENGLISH FOR VICE
Willie sang many of my most favorite songs last night
he dusted some off from years ago,
each with a rawness of the Outlaws
as he sang one for Waylon
as he sang
“Me N Paul” for Paul English
 what a life they’ve lived~
and
then he sang this:
and
once again
I lost my breath and was lost in time
for awhile:
So
welcome to the week-end
i hope it is spectacular!
Perhaps I should jump in the car to West Palm Beach
and
catch Patti Labelle as she is performing there tonight!!!
JUST KIDDING!!!!!
I’m thinking I’ll just enjoy this day
and
give the neighbors a musical delight
as I crank the volume even higher
after giving the 4 leggeds earplugs
and
enjoy
Patti Labelle and Willie
as
I continue
to stay blessed with the musical blessings
of the legends
that I was with the last two nights!
May you enjoy all that is waiting for you!
