“Of course, Dr. Budrock had to have a special pick just for these Two Legends Tour.
His idea and design, as for me, I just had to make it work…All my best to you..!”
Thanks to Budrock Prewitt, and Guthrie Thomas for beautiful guitar pick from Willie Nelson & Family’s shows in Las Vegas on Jan. 9, 10.
‘Well, certainly a night to remember, Willie and Family at the House of Blues in Las Vegas last night. Dr. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt, Willie’s Lighting Director and close friend, arranged our seating. This seating is only reserved for special guests. Backstage..! We were all very grateful and quite surprised. I have been backstage on hundreds of occasions in my music career, but this was the very best of them all…
Top image, Willie 5 seconds after he set foot on stage. Bottom image, 5 seconds later, with his fine band members joining him, Sister Bobbie on Piano, Kevin Smith on Bass, Paul and Billy English on Drums, and Mickey Raphael on Harmonica. Budrock and the Willie crew never cease to amaze me.
Many thanks to all of you…And, thank you, Willie..!”

Yay, first guitar pick of 2015 has been released!
“The first of many Willie Guitar Picks to start off the New Year. The top pick is a genuine sketch drawn by Willie, and the 2nd pick below is for his shows tonight and tomorrow night at the House of Blues here in Las Vegas. I hand delivered them today to Dr. Budrock, Willie’s Lighting Director and good friend, at the Mandalay Bay Resort where the House of Blues is located…Now, where is my Red Headed Stranger CD for the drive down there.
Have a good one everyone.”
“Willie’s “New Design” of his “Band of Brothers,” CD Picks. Dr, Budrock, and myself, agreed that the first design was a little to difficult to read. And neither Dr. Budrock L.D., or I, accept the unacceptable when it comes to Willie. If you received the first one, keep it, as it is now a very rare pick but, all of Willie’s picks are rare…
Designed by Dr. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt, L.D. As for me, I just push a button.”
