Willie Nelson Road Manager Poodie Locke Dies

Posted: May 07, 2009

I just got word from Billy Bob Thornton's manager Lisa  that Willie Nelson's road manager, Poodie Locke passed away from a heart attack at his home while doing some work on his computer yesterday. (May 6th, 2009)

Locke owned the Poodie's Hilltop Grill roadhouse on Highway 71 west of Austin for years and was voted Most Beautiful Baby in Waco in 1952. He was known for his sense of humor, generosity and support of local Austin artists, many of whom played some of their first gigs at Poodie's. Locke. He worked for Willie for 35 years and was Willie's friend and  golf partner.

 Everyone in Billy Bob's camp is devasted. All of our thoughts and prayers are with Locke's family, the Willie Nelson family and all of his friends in the Boxmasters camp.

Poodie was indeed one of the nicest guys I've met in the music business. In a past life (2003-2005,) i worked for the Dept of Energy in DC, dealing with our former nuclear weapons complex. Yes, it was taxing and suffice it to say, i didn't have the greatest bosses (W). While there, however, I enjoyed a modicum of success with music, including playing some choice venues with my band CubanStack and garnering airtime for some of my solo work. As my music became more prominent and my job became more miserable, I decided to hang up the DOE credentials and move to Austin, Texas to play music full time. It was altogether overwhelming and enthralling at the same time. Not to mention, being intimidated by the caliber of your every day musician in that town and the ever discerning ear of the fanbase. The first time I went to Poodies Hilltop Bar and Grill, I didn't know what to expect. Willie Country is a whole different ballgame...but, one thing unique to Willie Country is the accmodating and accepting atmosphere. After I finished my set, Poodie, positioned at the end of the bar with a crowd, made a point to praise the performance as I was trying to stealthily slink out the door. I had spent an inordinate amount of time tuning onstage, forgotten the lyrics to one of my tunes, stumbled a bit on a change, but maybe i had managed to squeak out a doozie somewhere in there that caught his ear. The next time in, he remembered me and joked about my penchant for tuning in between every song...with a shaky hand, no less. not sure what i said in return, but it was something smart allecky and he laughed... Shared a smoke with him and the dude that played Jerry Lee Lewis in "Walk the Line," and felt ever welcome after that. He didn't have to be nice or offer a compliment, for the guy spent his life running around with some of the greatest songwriters and players in the world. I think it was more my intimidation he wanted to set at ease and not my musical prowess that he wished to compliment. And that sentiment means much, much more to a scared kid from back east trying to crack the scene in the live music captial of the world. Rest in Peace, Poodie. You've earned it, but we'll miss ya.
