Searching For ‘The Bacon Of Music’

Searching For ‘The Bacon Of Music’

The other day, my friend shared a meme with me on Facebook that said, “Bass is the bacon of music.” Those words were printed over a pretty hot-looking bass covered by an equally delicious-looking tray of bacon. He knows me. I cracked up. Of course, those who aren’t bass players might disagree with that statement, […]

John Sebastian wasn’t wrong. New York City is one hot town in the summer. Still, when you’re a covert operative, like me, with a rich client, you’re not just intrinsically cool…you’re actually cool, too. I had my lightweight seersucker suit on. My girl, The Princess, was showering in our big bathroom at The Plaza. And […]

Editor’s Note: Subsequent to our Spy’s visit, Brown’s Music closed and it’s now been replaced by Stan’s Music. The description that follows is of a store visit that preceded that changeover. It’s always a thrill when The Chief calls me on the Spyphone to let me know he has another assignment, if I choose to […]

I felt exhilarated when I found out about my latest spy mission. I was to go—undercover, of course—to four musical instrument stores in search of a mid-level acoustic-electric guitar. Because I do not play guitar, I needed to come up with a cover story. I decided to go with the story that my 20-year-old niece […]

Usually, The Chief, cantankerous though he is, at least restricts our intrepid Spy’s mission to just a single city, within a single state. Well, he must have been in a rare mood this time, because he had our sleuth score a spying hat trick: Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia! [maxbutton id="6"]

What a great spy assignment! I’d be traveling along the Blues Highway, eating delicious barbecue and hanging out on Beale Street, where the music comes alive. I was headed to Memphis TN, baby! There is not a bathroom in town without a picture of the King himself, Elvis Presley. Really…every public bathroom has a black-and-white […]

I was thrilled to get an assignment in the historic city of Savannah GA. I was feeling on top of the world to know I was going to a city known for its southern cooking and moss-draped trees, and for Forrest Gump sitting on a bench below those trees spouting his philosophy that “life is […]

I got a call from The Chief at a reasonable hour, but he sounded frantic. “This mission is of the utmost importance,” he stressed, demanding that I journey immediately to Ashland OR in order to investigate the bounty of classical guitars contained within that vicinity. “It may be out of your way,” he said, “but […]

It was on a sunny day that I started my mission in Santa Cruz CA. The Chief had called me and ordered the trip south for guitar pedal investigation. The mission was gladly taken on. (I had my own ulterior motives to explore such devices for secret spy purposes, as well as having a deep-seated […]

I was roused from a deep sleep around 4am by a video message from The Chief. I should have known! I had been excited for a day off, but duty calls, and there is never a dull moment in the life of a spy. “Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is a trip […]
