RIP Merle

Hard to choose a fave but Willie and Merle singing 'bout Pancho and Lefty is hard to beat.

Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

If there's one song he's known for, this is it.....

Two more that take me back to playing catch with the old man as a kid listening to his country music that mom preferred he listened to elsewhere.

Merle was the most important C/W artist of all time IMO.  Johnny Cash and George Jones are close but I prefer the poet of the common man.  I will probably drink a lil beer in a tavern this weekend in memory.

Makes me glad I went to see him perform live, Apr 8, 2013.  I won't get another chance for that.
