As the self proclaimed “Chief Tester” of his marijuana company, Willie has reason to sound a little more raspy than usual. However, a Facebook friend of mine named Ralph made an excellent point. Oh, this guy probably owns the largest collection of cool records in town so I trust his opinions in reference to music. Here’s what he said:
Poor Willie. I’ve noticed that, when singers get old and start losing their voices, they start speaking the words rather than singing. Frank did it, too.
It’s a great point and a reality that I really don’t care to face. I thought Willie was immortal!
No matter your music preference, we are all down with Willie Nelson in some way. End of story.
