Hello everyone. I am just looking to get some opinions here. I have a friend who is a big time Waylon Jennings fan. This friend idolizes Waylon and he has even set up a myspace profile which is completely dedicated to Waylon. So I was thinking that as a Christmas present for my friend, I would make a scrapbook which is a tribute to Waylon. I would include pics from some of his best selling albums, have pages that tell about some of Waylon's greatest achievements or milestones he overcame, etc. What do you think? Good idea or bad idea? And does anyone have any suggestions as to what sort of Waylon related things I might include in this book to make it extra special?

I would include a photo of his first guitar, maybe a drawing of the house he grew up one, or photo of it. You could include a picture of his hat, and anything that would show where he grew up at, for instance if he lived in a ranch, or where in the State his birthplace was located, plus his favorite dish, scenes of him working, etc. Do you suppose you could get a newspaper clipping of his first show, and make a copy of that as well? It would show how far he went since he first started.

hmmm....I don't know if I could find a newspaper clipping of his first show as I'm sure this occurred well before I was even born. However you have given me a lot of great ideas! Thanks for your reply and all of the wonderful suggestions!

You could ask the newspaper, they probably have files in the morgue (scary name is it not?) and then they could get you a photocopy of a clipping. Oh thanks for the best response.

I think that is a very fun idea! You might look for little guitar brads or other embelishments. Also visit a website that has all the info and try to pick out certain things that he was well known for like something he liked to eat...or drink. You must be a wonderful friend!

you could include a trivia page--Ask quetions about like how he sang the Dukes of Hazzard theme song, how Stevie nicks wrote Leather and Lace for him and his wife (but they were divorced before the song came out)--and,um...that's all I know abou Waylon Jennings!
