The Work Ethic of Willie Nelson

Paying Attention:

Last Tuesday night, thanks to the generosity of our friends at Bill Young Productions (they produce almost every TV commercial that airs for touring music acts; at one point a Bill Young produced commercial was playing every 35 seconds in North America) and Houston producer Mike Hulsey, the hardest working man in show business, I went to see an American icon–Willie Nelson–perform at the new Smart Financial Center in Sugarland, Texas. Nelson is well known for both his look, instantly recognizable voice, and the songs that he’s created and sings, including “On The Road Again”, “Hello Walls”, “Pretty Paper”, “Funny How Time Slips Away”, “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain”, and “Crazy”, among others. Willie is 84 now, and was in the midst of a short 9 stop late fall tour with his band The Family.

The show was tight, professional, seamless and remarkable in more than a few ways. For one thing, it would be impossible to determine how old Willie Nelson was by watching him perform. His guitar playing is marked by the amazing dexterity of both hands and his drawling, Texas voice doesn’t waver or crack when he  sings. Nelson moved smoothly through the show, with no rest between songs; there was no extended talking between the numbers–actually, the most talking he did during the show was to introduce the five members of his touring band, none of whom used electronic instruments. Nelson played in front a huge Texas flag and was in constant interaction with the crowd, both during and after the show, when he went to the front of the stage and graciously shook hands and signed autographs.

His touring protocols are very finely tuned, and by the time Nelson had finished up with autographs and shakes, his road crew had stripped the stage of equipment and sound amplifiers. As our car was brought up from the parking lot, Willie’s bus drove past, on the way to his next gig later in the week. It’s safe to say that Willie Nelson has got the performing thing down.

Willie Nelson first made his reputation as a songwriter and wrote some of the biggest hits in the history of country music, but it was only a matter of time before he started performing and he hasn’t stopped since. His bio lists his career as starting in 1956 and it’s still not over–one part of being a legend is being around long and doing enough to create a serious legacy of work. That Willie Nelson has done, in spades.

As an icon, there is much to admire about Willie Nelson besides his music, his musicianship, and his unique voice and phrasing.  After doing some research on Willie, I came away even more impressed with something that is seldom mentioned about the “red headed stranger”–his work ethic. There are few performers, in any area of music, that have been as productive, as consistently, as Willie Nelson.

For the record, here are some key metrics of the Work Ethic of Willie Nelson:

Recorded 72 Studio Albums

Produced 10 Live Albums

Included on 37 Compilation Albums

Created 2 Sound Track Albums

Featured in 35 Music Videos

Released 110 Single Records

Generated 25 Number 1 Singles (US)

Generated 32 Singles (Overall)  

Name a 1996 Kennedy Center Honoree

One of the main organizers of the Farm Aid charity

Co-Chair of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws)

Has written 337 songs

On the Board of Directors of Habitat for Horses

Advocate for American Horse Slaughter Prevention ActInducted into Country Music Hall of Fame 1993

Inducted into National Agricultural Hall of Fame 2011

Gershwin Award Winner 2015

Rolling Stone Magazine 100 Greatest Singers

Rolling Stone Magazine 100 Greatest Guitar Players

Created Willie’s Roadhouse channel on Sirius XM Radio

Created The Willie Nelson Bio-Diesel Fuel Brand (made from vegetable oil)

Willie Nelson has not only outlived most of his contemporaries, he’s outworked them. At 84, he’s still stirring it up and turning it on in road shows. The lesson here is pretty easy to get: we can all do more. Have at it and don’t tell me you’re too old to do it. You aren’t.

Good Morning, it’s Wednesday, 22 November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

Forty-four years ago today, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas. President Kennedy was shot by Lee Harvey Oswald, a confused American ex-serviceman with Russian sympathies. Upon the death of President Kennedy,Vice-President Lyndon Johnson assumed the presidency. The course of American politics was changed forever by the Kennedy assassination.

Uber has announced a 2016 data hack that affected 57 million accounts. Fifty-seven million accounts. The scale and potential damage of these hacks is enormous. Uber also acknowledged that it had paid its’ own group of hackers to find and delete the data. A mess in every direction.

The Daily Grope: Pixar head John Lasseter is on a “leave of absence” after accusations of sexual harassment. Very bad news for the animation side of Disney’s business, but at least it came after their latest movie, “Coco” was finished and head for distribution.

The “Net Neutrality” roles that the FCC is preparing to rescind are good for consumers and were fair to website operators. Things are going to change.  The repeal of Net Neutrality will allow internet providers to more tightly control what consumers see, the speed of data transfer, and eventually to monetize more areas of internet service. As one congressman said, “if you like your cable provider, you’re going to love the new internet rules.” Do you like your cable provider?

Singer David Cassidy, who rose to fame as a member of TV’s “The Patridge Family” has died at age 67 of organ failure.

Today is National Cranberry Relish Day.  You’ll certainly be able to celebrate that holiday during Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow.

Good Morning, it’s Tuesday, 21 November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

The Daily Grope: Charlie Rose, the previously revered television journalist,  has been suspended from CBS, PBS, and Bloomberg TV after allegations arose that he was involved in inappropriate behavior with as many as 8 different women. Will the last male executive in broadcasting and entertainment please turn the lights out when you leave the building.

President Donald Trump, in an effort to get North Korea to conform to international standards of non-aggressive behavior, has returned that country to the list of Countries involved in State Sponsored Terrorism.

The Justice Department has sued to prevent the AT&T/TIme-Warner merger. Probably a good thing–the decreasing lack of competition in the media and entertainment industries is a cause for concern.

The FCC will outline its’ planes to eliminate the “net neutrality” rules that currently govern internet access and use. This is probably not a good thing for most users of the net.

Today is National Red Mitten Day. Better find them now, before you really need them.

Good Morning, it’s Monday, 20 November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

Charles Manson, leader of a cult that killed seven people in August of 1969 has died. Manson was 83 and died in prison.

The Daily Grope: Senator Al Franken (D-Minnesota) has been accused by another woman of alleged inappropriate conduct. A star journalist from The New York Times, Glenn Thrush, White House correspondent for The Times, has also been accused of alleged sexual harassment. Thrush has very publicly advocated in the past for women’s rights in the newsroom.

President Donald Trump tweeted that “I should left them in jail” when responding to LaVar Ball’s comment that Trump didn’t do much of anything to secure the release of three UCLA basketball players arrested in China for shoplifting. One of the players arrested was Lavar Ball’s son. Trump’s attitude toward Ball–and the three shoplifters–echoed the feelings of lots of Americans who are tired of over-protected athletes.

Country music star Mel Tills has died at age 85. Tillis was famous for his stammering style of speech and his exceptional songwriting ability.

Today is National Absurdity Day, which fits in perfectly with the times we live in.

Good Morning, it’s Sunday, 19 November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

In Zimbabwe, the ruling party has finished the job the military started with a coup early last week and dismissed long-time ineffective President Robert Mugabe, installing Vice President Emerson “Crocodile” Mnangagwa as head of the country. Mugabe had been in power for 37 years and is said to have gone on a hunger strike. Only fair, 95% of Zimbabwe’s work force is unemployed under Mugabe and probably doesn’t eat regularly. Enough.

The Daily Grope: Rap mogul Russell Simmons has been accused by a former Victoria’s Secret model of sexual misconduct. The flood continues.

Miami scored 30 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to beat Virginia 44 to 28. Miami remains unbeaten in football this year, as does Wisconsin, which beat Michigan 24-10. Wisconsin is now 11-0.

Fashion designer Azzadine Alaia has died at age 82. He was notably for his independence and body conscious designs. Another prominent death in the music world: AC/DC guitarist Malcomb Young has died at 64.

Good Morning, it’s Saturday, 18  November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

A high ranking Russian official, Alexander Torshin, allegedly tried to organize a meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. The initiative has been described as a “back door” invitation; the meeting never materialized but it’s seen as another in a broad series of efforts by the Russians to interfere in the 2016 Presidential elections.

President Donald Trump reversed a previous decision that would have allowed elephant “trophies” to be imported into the United States. The decision to eliminate the Obama era ruling aimed at curbing big game hunting of the elephant came as Trump decided to take a closer look at the regulations and the  conservation issues surrounding it.

The Daily Grope: The head of the Florida Democratic party, real estate developer Stephen Bittel is stepping down on Monday after complaints that the workplace environment he created was “creepy”. No one has accused Bittel of groping or harassing anyone and, to his credit, he moved quickly to remove controversy from the organization.

Good Morning, it’s Friday, 17  November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

The House of Representatives passed a draft of their tax reform bill. The bill takes away many important deductions  for the middle class and has severe differences with the tax reform bill proposed by the Senate. Expect an arduous resolution, maybe.

The Daily Grope: Senator Al Franken has been accused of sexual harassment by a former Playboy model. The incident took place before Franken was a U.S. Senator and while he was on a USO tour. Franken has called for an ethics investigation. Another mess in a town that doesn’t need another mess.

Inevitable: Rapper Lil Peep dead of an overdose at age 21. Rock & Roll & Rap continues to be a highly dangerous occupation.

Jose Altuve, the second baseman of the World Series winning Houston Astros, has won the American League Most Valuable Player trophy for 2017. Altuve has been the

Good Morning, it’s Thursday, 16 November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

An extremely rare Leonardo da Vinci painting, “Salvator Mundi”, sold on Wednesday evening for $450 million (price includes fees), which shatters the previous high price for artwork sold at auction. The painting, little known, has been described as having a “complex and interesting history”.

Republican plans for tax reform are stalling. One Senator has already said he could not support the current plant and others are backing away from the complex, difficult legislation that has taken a hit since the decision was made to include a provision to do away with the individual mandate in Obamacare. The bill is perceived as not favorable for the middle class or lower classes but very beneficial to corporations and the upper class. The irony is that healthcare–an issue the Republicans have struggled with all year–could play a part in shooting down yet another administration legislative initiative.

More accusers have come forth with accusations against Alabama’s Judge Roy Moore, a Republican running for election to the Senate seat vacated when Jeff Sessions left the Senate to become Attorney General. The mess continues.

Again: Another student, Matthew Ellis from Humble, Texas, was found dead in an off-campus apartment after attending a party at a Texas State University fraternity house where he was a pledge. The Phi Kappa Psi pledge’s death has resulted in the suspension of all sorority and fraternity activities at the college.

Good Morning, it’s Wednesday, 15 November 2017 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

The Military of Zimbabwe has staged a coup to oust long-time leader Robert Mugabe from power. Mugabe has been an ineffectual leader for decades, tanked the country’s economy, and is accused of looting its wealth for his own purposes. He is 93 years old and, really, should have been pushed out of office decades ago. Ninety-five percent of the workforce in Zimbabwe is jobless.

Airbus has secured $50 billion dollars in orders for its A320 single-aisle jet at the Dubai air show. Boeing also announced a new deal, worth $20 billion for its highly popular 737 model.

Again: A California gunman killed four people yesterday in a random shooting spree in Northern California near the town of Rancho Tehama.

The Republican party has pulled out of a financing agreement with controversial Alabama candidate Judge Roy Moore. Moore is running to replace former Alabama U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, who is now U.S. Attorney General. Moore has recently been bombarded by accusations of inappropriate behavior with underage girls and many Republicans are calling for him to quit the race.

Three UCLA basketball players, arrested for attempting to shoplift sunglasses at a Louis Vuitton store while on a trip to China to play an exhibition college game, have returned to the United States after being detained for a week in China. They are expected to face discipline from the university they were supposed to represent.
