Interview with Maureen Rafferty, chief of staff at the Jennings household.
Official Waylon Blog: Hi Maureen! Thanks so much for joining us on the Official Waylon Blog! We’re delighted to welcome you as you’ve been such a vital part of the Jennings family. For those just being acquainted with you, please introduce yourself.
Maureen Rafferty: I served as chief of staff at Southern Comfort , the Jennings estate in Brentwood, TN and traveled the world with the family as Shooter’s nanny. I was a teacher by profession, but began working part time for Jessi and Waylon in 1973.
Neil Reshen, who formerly managed Waylon Jennings ,Willie Nelson, and worked with various other musicians has passed away at 75. The New York Times wrote a piece on Reshen and used quotes from Waylon’s autobiography.
From the NYT:
“There was a time when Neil fed me and Willie, and if it hadn’t been for him, I don’t know what we would have done,” Mr. Jennings wrote in “Waylon: An Autobiography.” “He helped us immeasurably. He got things for us that no country singer had ever gotten before. If we were going to become Outlaws, though we didn’t know that yet, we needed an Outlaw Lawyer, as Willie called him.”
