Start at 9 minute mark and watch for 7 minutes. Then go back and watch the whole thing cause its Willie! (h/t to Mike Minnick on Facebook)

Ya think? Willie looks almost as young as his sons are now. Interesting: when he sings here, I can see the same gestures and head motions they use now.

Anyways....thanks, Marufo....I loved watching this.
