Rick Carlson boasts an impressive resume: retired San Diego cop, murder-scene artist, pet-coffin builder, theatrical set designer and author of an unfinished screenplay about San Diego during the days of bordellos, gambling joints, Wyatt Earp and other colorful characters. Now he can add one more job title to the list: county grand jury foreman. His face may not be familiar to the public. But true devotees of TV soap operas may recognize his hands. For several years Carlson acted as a "handgun model" for the soaps when they needed a shot of a gun being fired.

Saxman David Sanborn doesn't appreciate the way he has been labeled a "studio musician" over the years. "I never was a big studio player. I have that reputation, and I don't know why," said Sanborn, 46, who played or recorded with David Bowie, James Taylor and James Brown while launching his solo career with the 1975 album "Taking Off." "I never made a living that way. I was always on the road with people. To me, a studio musician is a guy who does a couple of sessions a day."

"After a while, I didn't have anyone left to raise," said the 56-year-old. She wanted to "just try going to another city."
