Willie Nelson Book Review
I recently finished reading the Willie Nelson biography wrote by Joe Nick Patoski called An Epic Life. This was the second bio I have read about Willie Nelson, the first one being about 15 years ago. I enjoyed this book much more, some of it is because I am a bigger fan of him now and am more interested in his story. But overall, it is a well written book and covers his whole life up to 2008. Willie has lived quite the life and seems like such a down to earth guy, not worried about money or what people think of him and such. He seems like the kind of guy that would take time to actually talk to you and listen to your stories, be a great honour I think to meet ol' Willie. He truly is an original outlaw, how many people can say they smoked a joint on the roof of The White House. Well, Willie can!!!
If you have any interest in Willie Nelson or country music period, this is a book well worth looking into. Highly recommended reading material.
