Susan’s Music Talk: I’m good


It’s been a busy week over here. I’ve been writing up a storm — writing up some novel-length storms, which is good news for you Trevor lovers.

But I had to give my friend Mary at BookHound some props.

She sent me a link to The Smoking Gun’s Friday Photo Fun. It’s a picture of a piece of a concert rider, asking that bacon be provided at all times for the band’s crew. We were supposed to name the band.

I got it right. And then I even told Mary this story of how I associated backstage bacon with Big Mick, Metallica’s now-retired (and very legendary) sound guy. I even met him once; he told amazingly neat stories. I wish I could listen to him for hours.

Turns out that not only was the band Metallica, my bacon association was right on. It was all about Big Mick.

Whether or not I officially won the contest — and HUGE kudos to TSG for offering BOOKS as prizes. I like them even more for that — I’m patting myself on the back and feeling good about my useless knowledge.

Come feel good with me, will ya? You know your love fuels my fiction.

    Hey, that kind of info was very useful at one point, right? You wouldn’t want to be a part of that contract and get it wrong.
