AUSTIN - Willie Nelson, who at 77, is still going strong and performing his country music songs to sell out audiences from Bangor, Maine to Calexico, California says that he feels better at 77, than he did at 27.
Willie spoke with Buck Yazoo of Yippee-Ki-Yay Magazine and said that he loves performing his songs more than ever especially his favorite one "Whiskey River."
He told Yazoo that he would actually do concerts for a couple of 'dime bags.' Nelson winked and whispered to old Buck to keep that under his cowboy hat of course which Buck said he sure a shootin' would.
Willie was asked what he thought about Hank Williams Jr's recent remark regarding Hitler. The guitar-strumming living legend smiled that patented Willie Nelson smile and said that he doesn't think that Hank Jr. looks anything at all like Hitler.
Yazoo shook his head and told him that Hank Jr. did not say that he looked like Hitler but that he had insinuated that the president looked like Hitler.
Willie took a drink out of his Lone Star Longneck and replied, "Ya know Yazoo my friend, try as hard as I can, I just don't see how Bill Clinton looks anything at all like that Hilter sumbitch, I really don't."
Buck Yazoo shook his head again. He then asked Nelson who his Republican choice for president is. Willie took two sips from his bottle of beer, ate a piece of deer jerky, and replied that his choice from the field of GOP candidates to run against Barack Alabama (sic) has got to be Abraham Lincoln.
Yazoo shook his head yet again. He thanked Willie for his time and told him that he hopes that he doesn't end up falling head-over-heels in love with Michele Bachmann thinking that she's Michelle Pfeiffer.
