    that Willie showed up at Dripping Springs (which I understand was the Texas version of Woodstock) looking like an accountant. Was ridiculed for his straight-laced appearance, left, and came back looking like the Willie we know now, and launched his career. Have no idea if the story is true, but it is interesting nonetheless.

    Anyone who scoffs at happiness needs to take their soul back to the factory and demand a better one. -driftglass

      But he played cheap joints up and down Hwy 105, between Cleveland and Conroe Texas, and all of us complained his music was not good to dance to, then 20 yrs later, there was a one time music festival somewhere around Lovelady or Crockett, and By that time, we worshipped him.
      lots of dope, sex, beer, fun, Willie, and all of us who are now bankers and judges and lawyers barely remember the details.
      We only remember Willie.
