The 84-year-old Texan really loves his breakfast.
We caught up with the Red Headed Stranger recently on his bus, and found out that Nelson, who will turn 84 this year, has no plans to slow down.
Q: You will be 84 in April, but you never slow down. What’s the source of all this energy?
A: I think I’ve always been energetic. A lot of people take drugs to get speeded up, but I don’t do that. So I don’t know where it comes from. I’m just glad I’ve got it.
Q: How do you like your eggs?
A: I don’t think you could fix ‘em any way I wouldn’t like ‘em. I eat them raw (laugh), however you got them. Soft scrambled, scrambled’s good.
Q: A lot of people might want to stay home more than you do. What is it that keeps you out on the road working so hard?
A: Well, I love to play music. I can do that better than workin’. (Laugh) I’ve tried that workin’ part, and the music is a little easier for me.
