When The Mrs. and I travel to bigger cities, we always stop and listen to anybody that is performing music on the street. Even if they suck, we’ll still throw in at least a buck or two to help the cause. If we came across this guy – the unknown genius Nelly Niel – ripping apart his lap steel guitar, we would have sat for hours and thrown singles at him like he was a smokin’ hot stripper working the pole. This guy is just mo-gangsta bad.
Here’s a cool follow up video from the guy that shot the original video giving him the cash he made from putting the video on YouTube. Kudos to Rob Chapman for supporting the starving musicians that need more coverage so they ain’t starving anymore!
