Merle Haggard: That Blue Flame

By Published: April 2, 2005
AAJ: Yeah, that's a good record. Great performance—no argument. So you've got a record coming out and you're touring, working—you've come a long way from Bakersfield. You've made a lot of records and done a lot of shows. What do you want to accomplish now?

MH: I just want to live through this Bob Dylan tour! (laughter) I am beginning to see the light; this is day ten and we're doing forty [shows]. I'm just looking forward to going home and fishing and spending the month of May with my family. We've got some places we're going to fish—we can't tell anybody where they're at because then they go to our fishing hole.

AAJ: Is there nothing decent anymore in the world?

MH: (laughing) Nothing! Nothing's sacred!
