Remember Mitch Ryder trying to promote The Rockets on David Letterman; David Letterman throwing up album; who cares? Mitch Ryder cared, and was shocked. Band that included his former Detroit Wheels bandmates, guitarist Jim McCarty and drummer John Badanjek. In 2013, Mitch Ryder could have played with again with Jim McCarty at the Ottawa Bluesfest, had circumstances seemed more suitable. McCarty’s band, Cactus, played on the same stage, immediately preceding Mitch Ryder’s performance.
Or maybe it was Mitch Ryder’s album at the time, Never Kick A Sleeping Dog (1983), that Letterman threw over his shoulder.
