"Silly Ridge has always been a great inspiration to me. I think if I practice, and practice, maybe I could sing back-up for David someday.
I mean, it could happen, right ?
Look,... Knight is not getting any younger, so I'm working up my chops, and when there's an opportunity,.... I'll be ready to step up"
Whenever I find myself not knowing what to do on stage, I ask myself: 'What would Silly Ridge do ?', and then do the opposite. It has worked well for me. " E. Presley
" Sure, there was a time when we experimented with that sound,...you know, mandolin, banjo and fiddle. I mean everyone wanted to be like Silly Ridge , right ? But SR had that vibe solidly wrapped up, and no one could touch them, you know ?.
I mean I'm not bitter about it. I'm not sure I could have handled the level of fame those guys have to deal with everyday ! " mick
In a letter, written in 1790 : One day while working in my studio years ago, a chilly grey cloud swept through the window, and suddenly there was an oddly dressed young man standing in front of me. He stated that he was a time-traveler from the a future musical group called Silly Ridge, and that he wanted me to come perform with them. Throughout the following hour, we worked up a bitchin’ version of Pig In A Pen, and before he departed, he said that he’d come back just before sound check, which I remain uncertain what that is, and assist me through the portal. He never returned, but I am thankful to him for teaching me Pig In A Pen, which was the inspiration later for my Sonata No. 11.
Thanks Silly Ridge Your pal, Amadeus
"My only real, life-long, dream was to be one of the Silly Ridge .
But breaking into that music scene in Highlands is tough, so I settled for less pay & recognition, and went into movies instead. " Paul N.
" Yeah, I wrote my best material while I was hanging out with Silly Ridge . " bob
