“Willie Nelson is like a lighthouse, like a preacher.  Every time I find myself in an emotional pressure situation, the first thought in my mind is what would Willie do?  ‘Cause nothing seems to rattle him.  I’ve had some problems here lately with my mind, like, ‘Oh, gosh, everything’s moving so fast, what gear should I be in?’ And Willie, he’ll tell me which gear.”

— Gary Busey
