Like Father, Like Son

We’ve all known of Willie Nelson’s rock star status for some time but seeing his son Lukas following so closely in his footsteps came as a bit of a surprise. He’s a key player throughout Willie’s new record Heroes which features a number of interesting duets including “Roll Me Up” with no other than Snoop Dog. As expected from Willie and friends like Kris Kristofferson and Sheryl Crow, it’s all good stuff but this smokin’ hot version of Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe” with Lukas riding shotgun with his dad is through the roof. The song choice, all Lukas’ idea, is brilliant and the family resemblance is startling. If at all possible, looks like Lukas may have taken his old man’s already high scoring game and lifted it up a notch or two. Now put that in your Father’s Day pipe and smoke it! From the record Heroes, here’s Willie and Lukas Nelson with “Just Breathe:”
