Synopsis:

In Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends, and colleagues who have blessed his remarkable journey. Willie riffs on everything, from music to poker, Texas to Nashville, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over the course of eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from family, bandmates, and close friends. Rare family pictures, beautiful artwork created by his son, Micah Nelson, and lyrics to classic songs punctuate these charming and poignant memories.

A road journal written in Willie Nelson's inimitable, homespun voice and a fitting tribute to America’s greatest traveling bard, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die—introduced by another favorite son of Texas, Kinky Friedman—is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time, a songwriter and performer whose legacy will endure for generations to come.


Review:

You won't see no sad and teary eyes
When I get my wings, and it's my time to fly
Just call my friends and tell them
There's a party, come on by
So just roll me up and smoke me when I die

In Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die, Willie Nelson muses about his greatest influences and the things that are most important to him, and celebrates the family, friends, and colleagues who have blessed his remarkable journey. Willie riffs on everything: music, wives, Texas, politics, horses, religion, marijuana, children, the environment, poker, hogs, Nashville, karma, and more. He shares the outlaw wisdom he has acquired over eight decades, along with favorite jokes and insights from friends and others close to him. Rare family pictures, beautiful artwork created by his son Micah Nelson, and lyrics to classic songs punctuate these charming and poignant memories. Willie Nelson has touched millions, and none more deeply than his family, friends, and bandmates, several of whom share, for the first time, intimate stories about the Red Headed Stranger.

From teaching a granddaughter to play the guitar to touring with the Highwaymen, from picking cotton while growing up in Texas to being home with the tribe on Maui, Willie takes you on the tour bus and, through candid observations and vivid recollections, gives you a front-row seat to his remarkable world. But beware: "You know you shouldn't be reading this BS, it could ruin you for all time to come," he says. "You could end up a social outcast like me, an outlaw!"

At once a road journal written in his inimitable, homespun voice and a fitting tribute to America's greatest traveling bard, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die—introduced by Kinky Friedman, another favorite son of Texas—is a deeply personal look into the heart and soul of a unique man and one of the greatest artists of our time, a songwriter and performer whose legacy will endure for generations to come.

Book Description: HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 208 x 140 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Nashville 1971. As the year drew to a close, Willie Nelson wasn t exactly feeling the spirit of the season. A stalled career, music executives hounding him for a formulaic Nashville Sound hit, and, consequently, an unsettled personal life all contributed to his holiday blues. One day, he wrote, What Can You Do to Me Now? The next day, his house burned down. Willie saw it as a sign that things had to change, and from that moment on, he vowed he would blaze his own path, with his music and his life- no matter if any one else understood or approved. After that life-changing period, Willie began making music his own way. Heading back to his native Texas, he reinvented himself and resurrected his career, got back on the road, and penned songs that miraculously brought hippies, bikers, and rednecks together in one audience for the first time. That success would propel him to the top of the outlaw movement - an authentic rebel sound and attitude that defied Nashville s traditional law-and-order authoritarianism - and seal his status as a beloved American folk hero. As they say, the rest is history - or as Willie says, If you fail at something long enough, you become a legend. Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die recounts that special holiday season and the inspiring results that followed that watershed moment. But unlike other seasonal tales, it features wild, colorful tales of Willie s hijinks, told in his unique voice. A story of thanks, faith, and staying true to your deepest beliefs, Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die offers hope and inspiration for us all. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780062193643
