Thanks to Guthrie Thomas for sharing this photo of his election-year Willie Nelson guitar picks!  I love every version.

“Greetings,

Now, I say this every four years, “It would not surprise me in the least, Willie’s been there so many times he already has his own room and he is ready to tell the world exactly like it is, how it should be, and would be when Willie accepts the job.”

Designed by Dr. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt and C.P. Vaughn.

Rest in Peace, Merle Haggard

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

django picks

“A very, very sad day…

Merle Haggard arrived at the gates of Heaven this morning. It is a sad day on earth and a great day in Heaven. These guitar picks were made for Merle and Willie’s “upcoming concerts” which were to begin in mid April. There were only 14 printed, 7 of each for review. The first says, Django and Jimmie, the second, Pancho and Lefty. They will never be printed again and they will be sent to Willie. I received the sad news from Budrock not an hour after Merle’s passing this morning. Today is also Merle’s birthday, April 6th, It is my understanding that Merle and Willie’s duo album, “Django and Jimmie,” was Merle’s last full length recording. Merle and Willie were close friends, and their duo album instantly reached the top of every country chart late last year.

Here’s to one of the last of the true and genuine country artist’s that will ever grace this earth. Rest in peace, Merle Haggard, rest in peace…”

“And, of course, Willie’s Luck Reunion in Luck, Texas at his ranch that Willie is hosting today and tomorrow most certainly requires a few guitar picks to play with. Designed by, Dr. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt of The Family and a cowboy who knows how to ride a horse backwards but very little else…”

Toni and Guthrie Thomas and Budrock “The Illuminator” Prewitt #Vegas #WillieNelson

guthriethomas

Thanks to Guthrie Thomas for sharing this photo of him and Buddy Prewitt and his lovely wife  Toni (Guthrie’s not Buddy’s), from the Willie Nelson & Family concert last week.

Well, Willie brings down the house again, nothing but professional efforts from the very best, Willie and his Classic Band. And one must include Willie’s Crew and Family, which are, The Family, Willie’s personal family, and his crew family, and all are, “The Family,” which is why he calls it, Willie and Family.

These three members are the 3 that make Willie’s guitar picks possible, Dr. Budrock, Willie’s Executive Lighting Director for 39 years, Toni, my wife, and the bipolar fellow in the Cowboy Hat, a Stetson for those whom might be curious.

Another great show and Dr. Budrock was the finest of host just as he always is. Thank you again, Dr. Budrock, and thank you Willie, and The Family. What a night for all…

420

Thanks so much to Guthrie Thomas for sharing photos of Willie Nelson guitar picks.

Guthrie tells tells the story:

And the story goes something like this:

Interstate “420” was to be 2 new U.S. Interstates that were never constructed, one in Georgia, the second in Louisiana. It had nothing to do with Cannabis Sativa, or Pot. The onset of this term, Interstate 420, as being associated with pot was originated at a San Rafael, California High School in 1971 by a group of students who all smoked pot and met to do so at 4:20pm on the foundation steps of a statue of Louis Pasteur, the chemist and microbiologist who was the first to introduce his discoveries of vaccination, microbial fermentation and, pasteurization. The amazing band, The Grateful Dead, soon was using the term, Interstate 420, as a reference to smoking pot and getting high. The term then circumvented the entire world and is now understood by millions to mean, basically, having a fine time smoking weed…

Now to Willie’s Guitar Pick as seen here. This pick does not say, Interstate 420, it says, “WillieState 420″…for obvious reasons…This guitar pick will be one of the rarest of all of Willie’s custom guitar picks as we only made 50 of them and Dr. Budrock is the only one, other than a few I have, and I am absolutely certain Willie will receive however many he might like from Dr. Budrock. If you should by chance get one of these picks, I would certainly hold onto it, as we also made the exact pick that says Interstate 420…Excellent Idea Dr. Budrock..!

Guitar Pick of the Day: Neil Young and Promise of the Real (Rebel Content Tour)

Thanks to Guthrie Thomas for sharing his photo of guitar picks he made for Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real on tour with Neil Young.

“Well, we are going to see a great Las Vegas concert tonight. Neil Young, Lukas & Micah Nelson, and POTR, a performance of the best with the best. I also have to give them their new 2015 Tour picks as Red told me they were almost out, and believe me, going to their concert is certainly better than going to the post office…”
