News from New York friends

‎”Many people erroneously think that buskers are homeless, or that buskers perform in the subway because they are not good enough to get gigs anywhere else. I know many, many of the buskers in New York City and none of them is homeless (one actually was homeless, but he isn’t any more).
And all buskers also have “regular” gigs on the so called “legitimate” stage. I’ve played at Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden and Lincoln Center, and I keep doing such gigs. But at the same time, I also play in the subway. Not because I have to, but because I want to. Actually – I’m addicted to playing in the subway :)”
