Don't buy...

What disappointed you about Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die?

Do you want to hear Willie talk about what's on TV? Or random sayings like, live in the now? Or do you want to hear twenty other people that you don't know, write about Willie? This isn't an Autobiography or Tales from the road. It is just randomness.... Do you want to hear his lyrics from songs? Or him repeat the same things over again in diff. chapters? Willie needs to fire his editor and stick to music.


What do you think your next listen will be?

Anything but this. I struggled to finish it.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration is fine, it's the subject matter and writer that were terrible.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die?

I would cut about 90% of it. I would keep his past and tales from the road, this would amount to about two chapters.


Any additional comments?

Don't buy this book... if you are curious, go rent it from the library.

Willie's Ramblings

What would have made Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die better?

It would have been better if it had included stories from Willie's life on the road.


What was most disappointing about Willie Nelson and Kinky Friedman ’s story?

I thought this was going to be a story about Willie's life. Instead it's just a series of ramblings from the last year including jokes and pointless musings on buttermilk to plugs for XM Radio.


How could the performance have been better?

It might have been better if Willie read the story. I had to re-listen to numerous parts because I couldn't figure out who was speaking.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.
