Paul English has died at the age of 87.  The Texas native has been playing with Willie since the '50s but officially joined his band in 1966.
Paul was also the inspiration behind a song that mentions Buffalo.

"Me and Paul" calls out Buffalo...

On a package show in Buffalo
With us and Kitty Wells and Charlie Pride
The show was long and we're just sitting there
And we'd come to play and not just for the ride

Well, we drank a lot of whiskey
So I don't know if we went on that night at all
But I don't think they even missed us
I guess Buffalo ain't geared for me and Paul
