    Billy Joe Shaver passes

    On Wednesday. I missed this until yesterday. That's two outlaws in short order. Live forever.

    Didn't he shoot a guy in the face, them turn himself in, and they let him go?
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Yeah, they said they didn't know what he was talking about. Later, he was charged and found not guilty because the guy had pulled a knife on him.

    My wife LOVES Shaver, more so the guitar playing of the son Eddie (who also has passed) has interviewed players that he played with (Guy from Georgia Satellites, Lucinda Williams Bass player (we got backstage to meet him) Eddie played with Dwight Yokum after Pete Anderson left

    Billy Joe was a character, and a gifted songwriter... just give Waylon's Honkey Tonk Heros a listen, Shaver wrote all the songs for that amazing album.

    They let him go because he was Billy Joe Shaver, and for no other reason. He should have died in prison.
