I never understood this guy’s rise in the country music scene and how he hasn’t been the receipient long before now of the same kind of treatment the Dixie(Ditsy) Chicks received.

Being a dope smoking leftist isn’t exactly a good fit among alot of country music fans, atleast the overwelming number I’ve known.

Bingo. He’s smoked so much pot in his life he can’t be counted on being rational. He probably has a bodyguard or roady who hangs around that carries a piece, so he’s never concerned about his safety, like most politicians and celebrities. Willie, go make some records and shut up, you burn out. Peace.

In his mind, however, high-powered assault rifles are an entirely different discussion

When did 9mm pistols become "high-powered assault rifles" Willie? Tell us about it before you go back to your nap.

The trouble with senior hippie citizens like Willie is they think their ideas and values, no matter how steeped in pot they might be, should be forced on the rest of us.

Hey Willie, please, stick to singing and smoking that funny stuff that makes your head fuzzy.

Yet Ol’ Willie was on the front row everyday during Billy Joe Shaver’s trial for shooting someone. (Robert Duval was sitting next to him. I don’t understand that.)

Billy Joe was acquitted. The story was the other guy brought a knife to a gunfight. If Billy Joe hadn’t have had a gun he’d probably be dead. Wonder what Willie has to say about that.

I lost any respect that I had for this guy when he agreed to follow Mr. and Mrs. Slick Willie around like a puppy back in the 90s in order to get out of his trouble with the IRS. It seems Willie isn’t a big fan of paying taxes.

How much money did Willie make off the violent gun imagery in Seven Spanish Angels?

Perhaps he could donate that amount to the families in Newtown.

The mainstream media causes these shootings.

These idiots or psychos do it for the fame the media will give them.

The media makes these shooters household names.

Then the evil media uses the killings they created , the victim’s blood to further empower government , to take away our individual rights and freedoms as is their goal. The media do it on purpose as they know other idiots see the massive coverage of the shootings and will copy. The media are pure evil.

Let’s not give this idiot the attention he sought. Let’s not give the media want the media want, but instead turn it on the media and expose them for what they are doing.

Chorus:
He's an old hippie and he don't know what to do
Should he hang on to the old
Should he grab on to the new

He's an old hippie...his new life is just a bust
He ain't trying to change nobody
He's just trying real hard to adjust

Willie has written some great songs. He should stick to what he knows.

Other than songwriting he is a liberal POS.

Nelson temporarily stopped smoking cigarettes each time his lungs became congested, and resumed when the congestion ended.[142] He smoked between two and three packages per day. After suffering of pneumonia a repeated number of times, he decided he had to quit either marijuana or tobacco. Nelson decided to quit tobacco.[143] In 2008 he started to smoke marijuana with a carbon-free system to avoid the effects of smoke in his lungs.

“These idiots or psychos do it for the fame the media will give them.”

“The media makes these shooters household names.”

These are very insightful points. We must not let the liberal media destroy our remaining rights.

PS: Memo to self — delete all MP 3 Willie Nelson files.

I watched Piers Morgan last night and he was screaming about getting everyone’s gun and he was saying over and over that it was an automatic weapon. There was a gun rights guy there and he said this happened in a state with severe gun laws, then Piers screamed, “Just give all 300 million in this country a gun and no one will get killed!”
He wants all guns out of this country, the fool.

Piers was out of control and he needs to get the hell out of this country and go back to England.

I recall when Willie Nelson sang the National Anthem at the Democratic National Convention in 1976. At the time, I had never heard of him, and judging from his long hair and scruffy clothes, I figured he was some hippie they had dragged off of Skid Row. Oh, and by the way, he left out the lines about the rockets and the bombs.

Willie's got way more talent than the Dixie Chicks ever thought about having. I'm willing to overlook more stupid political crap from the man who wrote "Crazy," "Night Life," and "Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground," than I am from the twits who gave us "Goodbye Earl."

Willie is an old and senile druggie. At one of his performances several years ago he was so drunk and senile even the local newspaper in NM had some choice words to say about him and his performance, and they were not good.

Then there's the story of the old hooker who after she had a picture of Elvis tattooed on the inside of one thigh, and one of Hank Jr. on the other asked an old drunk to critique the work.

After a minute he said, "the one on the right is definitely Elvis, and the on one on the left looks like Hank Jr., but the one in the middle is definitely Willie Nelson!"

Willie's tax problems were as a result of deductions taken starting in 1972 for tax shelters later declared by the IRS to be invalid.

The IRS investigation started twelve years later and took years.

Price Waterhouse publicly stated that nobody in the investment advisor industry during the period Nelson took the deductions would have concluded that the IRS would later take the position it did.

But yes, he owed the IRS $6 million in back taxes, plus $10 million in penalties in interest.

His rise and staying power are easy to understand. He has had some great recordings. He sounds terrible live, but much of his recorded music is fantastic. That’s true in spades for his recordings as one of The Highwaymen and in duets with Waylon. In addition to that, he seems like a really nice guy who is not at all full of himself, regardless of what he smokes or what he thinks about guns.

I seem to recall a story from long ago when (probably from when they were both still in Nashville) Ray Price and Willie lived somewhat near each other. Ray was raising fighting roosters, and one of them got loose and killed an animal of Willie’s. Willie DID shoot that rooster.
