sorry 'bout the cat!
If you read Runaway Comics you saw my impressive autograph collection featured there. But Riders In The Sky was not included because
1. It was lost! I just stumbled across it in my "files"! Actually, it was in a frame along with a bunch of other old neglected stuff piled up NEAR the files.
2. It doesn't actually qualify, since all my other autographs were collected by OTHER PEOPLE on my behalf. But I collected this one my own durn self when I saw Riders live on stage. Show #3,339 to be exact!
If you are familiar with Riders, you know that Too Slim sometimes leaves the stage and reappears as Sidemeat the old sidekick. Sadly (dad blame it!) Sidemeat did not make an appearance the night I saw them. After the show I asked Too Slim "Where the heck was Sidemeat?", and they made some joke about him having too much Injun Water the night before or something like that. But they were still great. It was still a great show. Just woulda been more "special" if Sidemeat was there.
If you are NOT familiar with them, you probably just forgot. They perform in "Toy Story" and Pixar's short film "For The Birds" and I think maybe in "Cars" and "Monsters Inc." Some other movie and TV credits as well.
HERE is Sidemeat performing the Sidekick Jig!
