Dad recently did a PSA for the homeless veterans in America. Production crews set up cameras on the bus before the concert, and the Redheaded Stranger asked that everyone open their hearts to our many homeless vets. A highly decorated Viet Nam veteran, who was also a fan, had given Dad this well worn, heavy medal hat to wear in honor of all those who have served our country with honor and pride. God Bless our American veterans and please support them when you can. They have already supported you.
Well I have no idea if the is the right place to be sending this, as it was an e-mail address passed on by a stranger on FB.
But to make a long story short, a few months ago I commissioned a portrait for gentleman who’s dream it was to have a picture taken with Willie. Suffice to say, he never got the chance and asked me to draw one for him. He had been told for years that he looked like his idol Willie, and he wanted to show everyone they were all crazy! ( I personally thought he looked like Willie too! lol ). 24 hours after a family member of his picked up his portrait, Basil unfortunately passed away . Now I don’t personally know Basil well, but from in the short time I got to know him all he could talk about was Willie. So I’m hoping to do him one last honor of knowing Willie got to see this picture, and where ever Basil is now I know he would smiling from ear to ear!
If there is any way you can pass a copy of this picture Willie in anyway, I know you would make one life long Willie fan and his family a great honor.
Here is a link to Basil’s FB page. People still send him Willie updates lol
Thank you Kindly
The Starlight Theater in Kansas City was packed with love tonight. Jason Isbell opened up the hearts of everyone with his beautiful voice, then Alison Krause and Union Station stepped up to the stage and melted even the toughest among us. She sings like a sweet, soft, fragile winged angel.
