    I love Willie Nelson. He is a legend in his own time. He needs to “know when to hold ….. and know when to fold …….. Due to your health and perhaps other age related issues it is time to fold up on the concert tours. Your mind and body is telling you to retire and stay close to home. Unless your plan is to die on the road.
