But despite his mainstream blues success, that isn't why he is included here. In 2002, Joss Weedon produced the science fiction show Firefly, and needed someone to record the theme song he had written for its opening credits. He got Sonny to perform the song, and the singers gravelly, world-weary blues voice provided the exact tone needed for both the song and the series. As a result of being the right man, on the right show, at the right time, Rhodes' voice is the sound of lost hopes and pensive dreams for many science fiction fans.
