Willie Nelson: An Epic Life

Little, Brown and Company, April 2008. First Edition. Hardcover. Used - Good / Good. Item #276582
ISBN: 0316017787

From his first performance at age four, Willie Nelson was driven to make music and live life on his own terms. But though he is a songwriter of exceptional depth - Crazy was one of his early classics - Willie only found success after abandoning Nashville and moving to Austin, Texas.

Red Headed Stranger made country cool to a new generation of fans. Wanted: The Outlaws became the first country album to sell a million copies. And On the Road Again became the anthem for Americans on the move. A craggy-faced, pot-smoking philosopher, Willie Nelson is one of America's great iconoclasts and idols.

Now Joe Nick Patoski draws on over 100 interviews with Willie and his family, band, and friends to tell Nelson's story, from humble Depression-era roots, to his musical education in Texas honky-tonks and his flirtations with whiskey, women, and weed; from his triumph with #1 hit Always On My Mind to his nearly career-ending battles with debt and the IRS; and his ultimate redemption and ascension to American hero.

First edition with full number line. Jacket has some dampstaining only visible on the reverse side. Some wear and peeling laminate on the top edge. Light toning on the margins of the print block.
