I just think these street musicians are awesome. Thought I'd share them with you guys.
The people walking by seem to be tone deaf. Sign of the times?
There are quite a few around in Boston - I remember seeing a black kid - looked about 10 years old, playing a "set" of drums next to Faneil hall. I say "set" because it was an old snare, one cymbal and a couple plastic pails. It was truly amazing to hear him lay down the complex rhythms.I've been getting away from mainstream, commercial fare ever since a friend turned me on to street music.
I'm finding so much cool stuff on youtube that I just can't stop watching.
Like these guys jamming on the streets of NYC (watch it to the end, it's really cute and funny).
Or these gypsies singing and dancing on the beach.
Life is beautiful
You've listed some of my all time favorites. They are the Greats! Who could argue? (I lived in N. Jersey too)You can date me.....
It's Jimi Hendrix in first place.......
After that, it's some of the blues standard like Buddy Guy, Clapton, etc.
R&B is also fine music! James Brown was truly the Godfather of soul. Some motown is good.....Wilson Pickett, etc.
Oh, Led Zeppelin is another winner. Turn up the sound a bit and listen to this. If you don't like this one.....well, maybe it's time to check out classical or jazz.
Oh, some of Springsteen is good too....(I'm from N. Jersey!)
Ok, now you can really date me.Since we're going back in time to an era of greats, can't leave out Janis Joplin.
