"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"                                          
Paul M.

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, 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

" 475 years from this day, I foresee a brilliant group of musicians, called,
  Silly Ridge, who will redefine  Bluegrass music  ...whatever that is ! "                                                                 Nostrodamas
