On this date, 19 years ago in 2004, we saw Willie Nelson and Lucinda Williams. I wrote a lengthy post you can read here. At the time, Lucinda was 51, but didn't really seem it ... she came to people's attention later than with most star musicians (she was 35 when her self-titled album that made us love her came out). Of course, now she's 70 (just like my wife and I) and still at it, releasing an album a few months ago, just after publishing her memoirs. Meanwhile, Willie is 20 years old than all of us, making him 71 when we saw him. He's now 90, and still at it ... the sucker has released two albums this year! Here are a few songs from Willie, Lucinda, and friends.
Here's Lucinda at Farm Aid 2004:Willie at the same concert:
Here they are together in 2004, singing Lucinda's "Over Time":
Finally, taking us back ... I think to 1962, despite what the title of the video says:
