Working in music retail
What can one say? I’ve been in music retail for many, many many more years than I care to admit to. What other job can you get paid to be around music all day, as well as meet, and in some cases, get to know and be friendly with some of the most well known names in music. I’ve head the pleasure of meeting some of my biggest influences and idols in music, and consider myself a very lucky person. People like Jimmy Page, Tony Iommi, Cozy Powell, Ronnie James Dio, Buddy Miles, Leslie West, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Mick Jagger, Dimebag Darrell, Noel Redding, Ace Frehley, and the list goes on and on and on. Some cool, some not so cool, and some super cool, whomever it happens to be for the most part, the experience has been unique. Working at Truetone Music has been amazing in the sense that in all the years I’ve been in this business, I’ve never seen a clientele like the one that visits Truetone on a pretty much daily basis. Not only do talents like Jackson Browne, John Mayer, Keb Mo, Brad Paisley, The Good Reverend Billy F. Gibbons, Brian Setzer, Andy Summers, Glenn Fry, B.B. King, etc., etc., etc., know they can rely on us, there is a mutual respect felt by them towards Truetone, and vice verse. Not only do these people frequent Truetone, many of them count on us for their gear, our expert repairs, expert knowledge, and the type of customer service that has made Truetone Music the destination guitar shop known and trusted throughout the world.
