Elvis is Awesome. He’s Everywhere. Yeah.

See if you can spot Country Dick Montana of The Beat Farmers just past 1:40.  His heart blew a gasket on stage years ago.  He was awesome.

Aussie Phil found the video.  Here’s the comment I dropped on his awesome website:

Years ago, Birdman and I went to see The Beat Farmers. We were hanging out in a bar waiting for the show to start and struck up a conversation with a couple of the patrons. I asked them if they knew anything about the warm up band. They said “Oh, man, they’re great! You’re gonna love ’em!” and bought us a round of tequila. We reciprocated, and all went out to see the show.

The show started, and there were those same guys from the bar… on stage. We’d been drinking with Mojo and Skid!

After the show we ran into them in the parking lot as they were packing up, and told ’em that they were right about the warm up band.

    I envy the fact that you saw Mojo and Skid in concert. One of my all time favourite songs is “I Saw Jesus at MacDonalds”. Most of my friends just don’t get it.

    Epilogue– I drove back to my apartment, told Birdman he outta sleep on the couch. Instead he decided to risk driving home. He snagged a DUI when his car stalled at a police sobriety checkpoint.
