Roadside Kills

Roadside Kills: After driving back from a late night performance gig many years ago and I was amazed at how many dead animals were lying on the road during my journey home. This particular evening I was extremely hungry and the drive home was through remote areas where there were lots of woods and farmlands. On one stretch of road some person actually pulled their car over and decided to remove an animal carcass from the middle of the road (yuk!). About half a mile past the carcass toting, night stalker… I came around a bend in the road and there was a closed restaurant with a neon sign flickering in the night sky. Thinking… what a song that would make. Maybe that person was the restaurant proprietor… even better… maybe the short order cook. I had a good laugh. The end result was “Roadside Kills”.
