Paul English Dies at Age 87

Fri Feb 14, 2020 8:59 pm

Paul English, who was Willie Nelson's longtime drummer and featured in the song "Me and Paul" by Willie Nelson has died at the age of 87 after dealing with a period of pneumonia. English was born in 1932 in Vernon, Texas and joined Nelson's Family Band in 1966 and continued with Nelson until English died, sharing procession duties with his younger brother Billy English. In addition to being Willie Nelson's drummer, Paul English was his bodyguard and enforcer, often carrying a pistol in his boot. Seven without his gun, English was an imposing figure and developed the persona of "The Devil", grooming menacing facial hair, dressing all in black, and sporting a satin cape that is currently on display in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Very sad to see a pop culture icon pass away and condolences go out to English's family and Willie Nelson.
