Adventures in Music

In today’s episode of “Why Aren’t I Dead Yet?”:

Aaron leaves Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria after a rocking worship session for Asheville Beer and Hymns. He steps out with cajón and guitar in hand. A man with a guitar and a scraggly beard walks up to him and starts jamming out, while maintaining full eye contact the whole way. The guy busts out some wild jazz licks with a voice raspy as all can be. Aaron is impressed. When he finishes, he says, “follow me.” Intrigued, I do just that.

We then proceed to take a walking tour of Asheville, playing music for random folk as we go. We even play INSIDE a gas station, at the attendant’s bequest. Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Aerosmith: we are really cooking. Finally, Aaron is beat, goes home, and sleeps soundly that night.

I don’t know why these things happen to me, but I’m so grateful. Kids, don’t try this at home. But, that said, life is beautiful.
