Willie Nelson rocks!

Willie Nelson, shown at a recent concert in Germany, should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Willie Nelson rocks! - Music - NJ.com: "Willie Nelson. He deserves to be in just for his songwriting ('Crazy,' 'Funny How Time Slips Away,' 'Night Life,' 'On the Road Again'). But when you factor in his hitmaking ability, his prominent place in the 'outlaw country' movement of the '70s, his nonstop touring, his leadership in the Farm Aid movement and his experiments with reggae, jazz and countless other forms of music, his induction seems like a no-brainer. Of course the Hall doesn't have many country artists in it. But if its definition of rock 'n' roll is broad enough to include Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Bob Marley, Madonna, Miles Davis and The Flamingos, it should be broad enough to include Willie Nelson."
