Bio-Willie

Last year we heard that Willie Nelson was coming out with his own brand of Bio-fuel, called Bio-Willie, which he’d be selling through Distribution Drive [1]. Today the New York Times [2] ran a piece on Willie and his alternative fuel, writing: “While Bono tries to change the world by hobnobbing with politicians and Sir Bob Geldof plays host to his mega-benefit concerts, Willie Nelson has birthed his own brand of alternative fuel. It is called, fittingly enough, BioWillie. And in BioWillie, Mr. Nelson, 72, has blended two of his biggest concerns: his love of family farmers and disdain for the Iraq war.”

When the Times asked Willie where he thought biodiesel was headed in the long run, he said, “I hope somebody makes money out of it; I’m sure they will. And probably what’ll happen is that the oil industry will wait until everybody else builds all the infrastructure and then they’ll come in and take over,” he said. “But that’s O.K. I don’t worry about that. As along as the idea progresses because all I’m caring about is getting it out there and maybe helping the country, the farmer, the environment.”
