A busker is a wee guy (or woman) who plays on the streets for tips. In bands, to busk, means to bluff your way through a song that you haven't rehearsed with whomever you happen to be standing beside on a stage. It may be the first time you have played it. Sometimes you might not have even heard the song before. When there is a big crowd in front of you, listening to every note, that's when the fun starts. This is a passionate, humorous and highly original look at the life of a musician on the road and what it is really like to be a musician. If you love music and you want to know more about what it is like to be a musician, then you will love this book.
