Wow.We are all getting older it seems. 2020 taking it's toll early.
He was quite a guy!
RIP you rascal !
(I’d say that video posting was a draw based on time so I’m leaving mine up!)
Here’s Paul looking as much like Waylon as any man alive . Willie has so many stories on what a pistol-totin’ get-things-done dude Paul was . Hell - he wasn’t even supposed to be the drummer - he was just helping out !
They certainly don't make them like that anymore. RIP
glad to have seen him live twice.
Paul lived to be 87. So much for all that clean living BS
Damn, that’s a big loss for me. Paul was a rock steady part of Willie’s “feel”. He was a hit the times Willie played at KERA (PBS) in Dallas.he was a genuine Cosmic Cowboy
RIP big guy
Paul English, Rest In Peace
Saw him in 76 when he and Willie were at the top of their game. Saw them 3 or 4 years ago when Willie was the only guitarist and Paul's son was playing the drumset and Paul was playing tambourine and other misc percussion. It was pretty sad to see them struggling, much like seeing BB King go from a great guitarist and singer reduced to occasionally playing a note or two and telling stories. I know it's not a popular viewpoint, but I don't enjoy watching someone wither away in front of an audience.
I remember reading a story years ago about Willie and Family. The author described Paul as "looking like an old fashioned country preacher's vision of the Devil"
We received our education in the cities of the nation, me and Paul.
I knew the late pedal steel guitarist (Elvis, Ray Price, Willie Nelson) Jimmy Day, and he had a healthy fear of Mr. English.
I recall him referring to him as “the devil”.
Mr. English did indeed have a checkered past.
So long Paul.....RIP
Similarly, I saw him in '78 and again last year at Farm Aid (once or twice in between). I understand your sentiment completely but as I watched him, I had to assume that he wanted to be there and I was happy that he was afforded that opportunity. Was glad to see that Bobbie Nelson was still taking solos at 88 years old. The band, supplemented by Luke Nelson, sounded great.
I wish Luke had been there when I saw Willie, because it sounded REALLY empty with no guitar other than Willie, since Willie really doesn't play rhythm.
