Part bio, part song lyric collection, part road diary, Willie Nelson’s Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die: Musings From The Road is a thin hardcover easy read that will make one chuckle and think, but mostly entertains the reader.

Featuring some artwork by Willie’s son singer/songwriter Micah, passages by his sister Bobbie, Willie’s current wife Annie and other family members, this is as much a book of Willie’s musings as a celebration of his family, his love of Texas and Hawaii and his friends-lesser-known pickers and poker players as well as celeb country musicians. Don’t expect a step-by-step linear tell-all here, but then again if you pick-up a book written by this infamous Red Headed Stranger and expect something along the lines of a normal autobiography, then you don’t know Willie Nelson at all.

To be honest, about half way through this book I was a little well-done on Willie-isms and his continued professed faith in life and family, positive as it is. I would have preferred a little more nuts-and-bolts about the business or Willie recounting some more specifics about his playing life, but there’s enough bio stuff peppered throughout Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die: Musings From The Road to get you through what is generally a harmless quick read, and when Willie relates true (and dated) road diary entries you really do feel like your on the bus with him.
