That’s probably the best, all-encompassing way to describe Billy Joe Shaver.
At 75, Shaver has been there and done that. And been there and done that again. He’s lived pretty much every funny, poignant and original lyric he has ever penned. The guy is a survivor, in ever sense of the word.
However, it wasn’t until Saturday night at the Kessler that I finally got to see Shaver perform live for the first time.
