First Truth - Eric answers to the name "Bacon."
This is true about me. I do have a select few friends that still call me Bacon. Why, you ask? Well it doesn't have anything to do with my love for breakfast. I actually am not much of a breakfast person. It also is not a bandwagon thing, to join the ever changing Bacon craze that has hit merchandising on Internet websites like Archie McPhee. No, as a matter of fact, the original spelling was "Baykin," and it was the first radio persona I used, starting in college. I was Brad Baykin. That later changed to Brad Bacon. Now with all the cool Bacon items that have come out in the last 2 or 3 years, I'm always getting cool gifts, but this Bacon was here first. By the way, in case you wondered, Eric Cornish is my given name.
Second Truth - The first CD I owned was by New Kids On The Block
Yes, unfortunately, this is the truth. I'm sure from time to time, your grandparents gave you a gift that you had to smile and pretend you liked. On my 10th birthday, my heart was warmed with a pair of socks and a jar of jelly from one grandma. Well, on one Christmas, my other grandma, trying to be hip to the times, got me a CD of the hottest band around (which I'm sure she asked the clerk about). Problem one - she didn't specify whether it was for a boy or girl. Problem two - she didn't bother to find out that I didn't own a CD player yet...only tapes. Problem three - it wasn't even their break-out album "Hangin' Tough," but their self-titled debut, which isn't nearly as good...Uh..I mean...I took that back to the store ASAP!
The Lie - Eric co-wrote a song recorded by Collin Raye
Sorry, this is not true, but I wish it was. I dabbled in writing poems, that I hoped would be picked up by an artist like Collin Raye. One thing Collin and I do share is our love for pro-wrestling, and I may not have written a song for him, but I have locked up in competition...and I won! OK that's a lie too.
