The side jobs
Of course, it's hard to actually make a living in rock 'n' roll. So LoPiccolo had to find a day job to pay the bills. He worked a variety of jobs — all tied to music.
He took a job at Tweeter, where he specced high-end audio systems.
He worked at LaSalle Music (on the Boylston St. site that is now Jack's Drum Shop) as a professional audio salesman, and for Parson's Audio selling audio gear to recording studios.
