Country Willie Edwards and his band “The Cosmic Debris” finally defy the gravitational pull of Deep East Texas and launch their first West Coast Tour after receiving an invitation to record with The Legendary Stardust Cowboy. Country Willie hales from the community of Sardis, Texas along the Neches River basin. He has written over 1,000 songs, many of them inspired by his childhood encounters with UFO’s.
Country Willie and “The Cosmic Debris” took along a seasoned guide, an able mechanic, and Peter. Together this group set out on a bus known as “Green Hell” for California. Peter Guzzino, became the opening act for Country Willie and the “Cosmic Debris” with his exclusively seventies-style random acts of entertainment. Cockfighter Brian “Birdman” Birdwell offers to drive the band’s fragile bus in return letting his prize roosters hitch a ride to Hollywood. Parapsychologist, experienced hitchhiker, and global twirler Audrey Dean Leighton guides the expedition as far as Los Angeles. There he plans to learn the Internet and strike gold with a cyber psychic readings storefront.
