Guest Review: Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die by Willie Nelson

This review is being brought to you by "The Husband". Though I am a fan of Willie Nelson's music, I was not very interested in reading about his "Musings from the Road".

I'll leave it up to the musician.

Guest Review:
This book is written in possibly the most down-to-earth, folksy verbage of any I have read. It reads like some stream of consciousness style poetry, crossed with an 'on the road' type journal. I think it offers a wonderful glimpse into the mind of an iconic American legend. His philosophy is the simple stuff of a folksy upbringing crossed with the hard scrabble reality of making it in the American dream; with a dash of what it is like being a mega-celebrity. Hearty and brash, this rambling memoir is worth a read from every fan, or even someone curious about the music biz. Highly recommended.

I love him. I bet I would love this book. I bet it would be even better on audio if he narrated.

This definitely wouldn't be for me, but I will keep it in mind if I find out someone I know is a fan!

So I saw Willie in concert this summer. He was wonderful and could strum the heck out of a guitar considering how old he is! He still has it! He was high as a kite, too, so even better! lol My friend was working backstage with the local band that went on before him and Willie invited him onto his tour bus. There sat none other than Luke Wilson the actor! He was filming nearby and caught the show and was hanging out with Willie. It was all very cool! Willie was just a chill guy.
