Willie Nelson: Funny How Time Slips Away

Bill DeYoung, Goldmine, 6 January 1995

WITH HIS beatific smile and twinkling bright eyes, Willie Nelson looks like the most serene and centered man on the planet. When he's wearing a Stetson hat or a wide red bandanna (both trademarks of his for many years), he brings to mind a sort of Western Santa Claus, someone you'd trust to slide down your chimney and come into your house with a sackful of cap guns. Singing a cowboy tune.
