Alton Brown's Very Own Musical Mastermind

Ever wonder who comes up with the endless variations of the Good Eats theme?  Well, if you're an Alton Brown nut like myself the name Patrick Belden is already a household name.  For those of you who aren't as crazy as myself, Mr. Belden, of Belden Sound & Music, not only creates and performs all of the Good Eats interludes, but is also responsible for the superb Feasting series music.  His creations for the first Feasting on Asphalt is hands down my favorite.  The cruising surf-rock guitar melds perfectly with the motorcycle theme while the reflective finale when they finally reach the Pacific almost brings tears to your eyes and makes you crave for your own road adventures.

Stop by Patrick Belden's website for a great Good Eats montage and see (and hear) some of his other work from TV series and commercials, such as Mario Eats Itlay and Mexico: One Plate at a Time.
