Okay, we’ve all got that one friend who REALLY knows how to throw a great party.   But even that friend has to tip his hat to the one and only Willie Nelson, whose 4th of July picnics have been the ultimate combination of informal jam session, clothing-optional hoe-down and testing ground for the most potent strains of cannabis known to mankind.   And when Willie Nelson’s rowdy friends pop in for a few drinks, a few tokes and a few tunes, things start getting pretty lively.

Now these aren’t your standard-issue party animals.  We’re talking about Waylon Jennings, Wolfman Jack, a visibly drunk Leon Russell, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and many, many more.  These good old boys knew as much about partying as Marie Curie knew about radium.   Be there!!
Rated R.
