If you don't live in Austin, Texas, you may not know how loved and revered Willie Nelson is here. Just think: they erected a statue to him in the park by the river. Plenty of people have gotten statues, but how many have gotten them while they're still alive? The only other ones I can think of are tyrants like Joseph Stalin and Saddam Hussein who built statues of themselves. But, Willie is no tyrant, and I'm sure he didn't ask for- or expect- any statue. And I'll tell you this: the day he dies, tears are going to flow like water in the Colorado around here. It will be the day the music died.
