Out on the slopes
Anyone else see this duet by Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson doing Rainbow Connection at CMA's the other night? Willie's health has taken a turn for the worse lately and he's in really bad shape. He gave a very gutsy performance while fighting for every breath. I think he has emphysema and/or pneumonia? Kacey did a nice job toning things down to sing with him.
On social issues I'm about 180 degs out from Willie, but I'm a big fan of his songwriting and musicianship. Hate to see his time running out. When he goes they'll definitely have to put his guitar in a museum. Trigger is about as iconic as a musical instrument gets!
Leonard Cohen 1934-2016. Very sad news. The young man could sing like an old man and the old man could sing like a young man.
