Waylon Jennings admitted to having a $1,500 per day cocaine habit for much of his outlaw career. Many think the effects of the drugs followed him into sobriety and cut his life short in 2002 at the age of 64. In 1977, he was arrested for cocaine possession, but the charges were later dropped. He got a Top 5 hit called ‘Don’t You Think This Outlaw Bit’s Done Got Outta Hand’ out of it. Jennings sobered up for good after moving to Arizona in 1984. Like most creative talent, Waylon's battle with his demons probably added to the richness of his music. Who knows? Anyway, I ran across the great piece of video and thought you might enjoy.
