I was singing the Beatles song “Blackbird” the other night and girl came up to me after the song told me about how it was here favorite song. So much so that she got an sweet tattoo of it. I had to take a picture of it.
I have always loved this song and have been very moved by it. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I found out what it was about. I saw Paul McCartney at Coachella in 2009 (what a performance!). He mentioned that they wrote that song about the civil rights movement. I always felt that there was something very powerful in “Blackbird”. It has a lot of history.
To this day, I enjoy playing “Blackbird” out. Its a challenge to play it and focus on the crowd and not look at the guitar but it pack so much history and emotion.
I have been a Las Vegas strip street performer for a while now. I have seen a lot of different things from proposals, fights, to dancing pandas. But the past few nights I have had this quadcopter drone follow me around. I don’t know if its the police or some hobbyist out there. Either way, I know that I am a help out there. I know I have saved a few lives and treated some drunk medical emergencies. One time a person fell to the floor and had no pulse, so I called the ambulance right away. Another night I remember this girl that stepped on a champagne glass in front of me and was bleeding all over the place. I gave them the quickest directions to the nearest facility that could bandage her up. Either way, if it is you Big Brother watching me from a drone, you needn’t worry about me for I am only a help out there.
Here are some fun shots from me playing guitar and singing the other night on the Vegas strip.
