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 […]

The Chief hadn’t called me in a while, and I was beginning to get suspicious. I had been running with a pretty rough crowd: attorneys; lobbyists; the IRS…you know the type. I wondered whether The Chief might have found himself a new sleuth, one a little more strait-laced and less apt to wander into dangerous […]

The beginning of a new school year brings with it…rental season. It’s a time when parents go from music store to music store and try to understand the difference in rental programs and what works best for their child and budget. It is a time when music retailers go, well, nuts! I have experienced the […]

I had just returned from a secret assignment, one in which I saved the Organization’s petunias, and I was beginning to question my mission. After all these years, it never ceases to amaze me how challenging this job can be. Call me a crazy fool, but I’m always expecting more than just empty congratulatory lines […]

The Chief finally caved in. It had seemed like I could only score assignments under cold and cloudy conditions, but I cheered when The Chief gave me an assignment where I found sunshine and warmth. Spy work is so much more pleasant when the sun is out and its rays shine through the windshield of […]

After a few weeks of lying low, I received a call from The Chief. “Hop in your car and drive into the heart of the desert,” he barked. “I need you to find the best high-end guitar in Vegas.” I scrambled to get my ducks in a row, jumped in my car and drove for […]

He did it again… The Chief gave me an assignment in a city that’s typically blustering with snow and wind in the middle of winter. “The assignments have to be done well in advance of their being published,” The Chief said. But, this time, I fooled the weather and The Chief. You see, on the […]

It was Independence Day. Or, at least, that’s the way it felt when I was traveling through Rhode Island on my most recent mission. And when I say “Independence Day,” I don’t actually mean in the traditional sense. Certainly not as in the summer-centric, family-oriented holiday that’s filled with fireworks and backyard barbecues. Far from […]

While I was hibernating during the cold winter months, a call came in for me from The Chief. “It is imperative that you search the city of Sacramento for the best selection of bass guitars, and for astounding customer service,” he barked, rousing me from a bleary-eyed cat nap. I came to attention rather rapidly, […]
