Willie Nelson

All Smiles

After Medical Scare

8/23/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

0823_willie_nelson_PCNThree days after canceling a performance in Denver after suffering from "breathing problems," music legend Willie Nelson resurfaced looking happy and signing autographs in New Orleans on Wednesday.

On Sunday, the 79-year-old was hospitalized because he was having trouble breathing "due to high altitude and emphysema."

Good to see Willie on the road again.

Is this an old pic or did the photographer capture the ghost of waylon jennings behind willie? Can't be that old since there is a relatively new iphone in the middle of the pic.

I agree with Jennifer. Did they really capture the ghost of Waylong Jennings on camera? My man says its a cut out pic of him but I say its not. Could it be a person who impersonates him? Would really like to know.
It has me baffled.

That is not Waylon Jennings. It is Willie's drummer, Paul English.
