Had a heavy lunch today, think I'm busking right now.
Oh, I'm sorry, you're talking about bums playing music. No, never done it. Have hopped a few freight trains though, seen a lot of things out on the road. Saving up to go to Alaska soon, the last frontier.
Was on the road in the 90's and got screwed over by a booking agent 2 weeks into a 2 month run. Had a week with nothing to do and no money, so we stopped off in 3 cities on the way to the next gig. One each day, and busked to make some money. Several times as a group and several times we split up. I remember that when we split up, the drummer made the most money. But we made enough to feed ourselves buy hotels, and get to the next gig.
Our plan worked, and I learned that busking is a ****************ing bitch. It's the ultimate in "get to the point" musicianship/entertainment.
