To clear up some personal confusion:

Willie Nelson – Born in 1933 and is legendary country singer, just played in Sothern Humboldt. He gained fame during the “outlaw country” movement, and has remained iconic.
Willy Mason – Born in 1984, a singer-songwriter of the folk variety, opened for Bright Eyes in October of 2005 at Humboldt State.

Mason Williams – Born in 1938, a guitarist and composer, most known for his guitar instrumental composition "Classical Gas," and Emmy award winning comedy writer, has not played in Humboldt County – to my knowledge.

Mason Jennings – Born in 1975, a pop-folk singer/songwriter. Is playing at Humboldt State November 11th. Get your tickets soon because he's an excellent musician and performer, Tickets are $20 for HSU students and $25 for regular folks, and it's in the Van Duzer so seating matters.


Waylon Jennings – Born in 1937 and died in 2002, country singer and musician, played with Buddy Holly, but didn’t die in the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Richie Valance, and the Big Bopper because he gave up his seat to the Big Bopper. He was good friends with Willie Nelson.

As far as I know none of these men are related, they all just have similar names and play guitar, and write songs and sing and hang out in the folk-country-rock genres.

This cracks me up, and I still can't tell one of them from the other in any way. It'd like trying to tell the difference between the Stills, the Kills, the Thrills, and the Killers. I'm pretty sure they're all the same band.

I think that All American Chemical Fallout at the Disco is a band.
