Louis Neefs [as Zondagmiddag - Lilian, name of his wife; they both died in the same car crash]
Mama's Jasje [as Zondagmiddag - Lilian on Louis Neefs 20 Jaar Later]
Handsome Family [on Kristofferson tribute Nothing Left To Lose]
Alvin Youngblood Hart [on Johnny Cash tribute]
Rick De Leeuw [as Zondagmiddag Lilian]
