April 28: Bob Dylan & Willie Nelson – KRLU-TV Studios, Austin, Texas 1993

bob dylan & Willie Nelson 1993

He [Willie Nelson] takes whatever thing he’s singing and makes it his. There’s not many people who can do that. Even something like an Elvis tune. You know, once Elvis done a tune, it’s pretty much done. But Willie is the only one in my recollection that has even taken something associated with Elvis and made it his. He just puts his sorta trip on it…

One thought on “April 28: Bob Dylan & Willie Nelson – KRLU-TV Studios, Austin, Texas 1993”

  1. Bob Dylan sure has Willie Nelson
    pegged , as many of us know Willie can pick up any song ( if he likes it) and give it his own lyrics and tune , & with that nightingale pitch blend in with any singer’s voice. The beauty of Bob Dylan & Willie on the song they sang is how much they are alike ( unique voice wise ) , great writing , humble , and their own men .
