I think it's generally a good thing. Hey Lee have you ever tried Second Life? They have all kinds of venues there and you can do concerts in the middle of the night if you want.

I haven't done much of it...
location is a key element...

I've tried busking on a pretty empty street corner,
wasn't a very fruitful use of time,
I packed up and left after a couple of songs...

the one time, I do recall, that was interesting,
was in the subway, (I'm in NY)
and there's this long corridor passageway,
from one train to another, a city block apart,
and it was kinda rush hour,
so a ton of people were rushing through as they do everyday,

and I popped open my guitar case,
strapped on my acoustic,
and sang, oh, maybe four or five Beatle songs,
before a police officer came along and told me I should move along now...
so I did. didn't bother counting, but I stuffed a buncha quarters
in my pocket,

later on, I go and count 'em,
that wasn't bad, I had about seven dollars worth of quarters,
all in just maybe a little over ten minutes or something like that...

I don't generally do it though, that's about the extent of it, I think.
I prefer making records. I'm good at makin' 'em sound like I want 'em.

Busking is always a good idea. Otherwise, the corn will rot.

I used to live across the street from a big ol' huge cornfield,
in Ellenburg NY,

I could even point out a song or two I have, recorded there,

"Unknown Me" is one of 'em,
recently released that... it's so quiet there,
lotta space...

and anyway, Dan, don't you mean 'husking'?

Well, no, if they throw corn at you, you should eat it before it rots.
