Photographer's Note

Invest in Me

Well, I quit my job down at the car wash,
Left my mama a goodbye note,
By sundown Id left Kingston,
With my guitar under my coat,
I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis,
Got a room at the YMCA,
For the next three weeks I went huntin them nights,
Just lookin for a place to play,
Well, I thought my pickin would set em on fire,
But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man.

Guitar Man sung by Elvis Presley
(words & music by Hubbard)

Theres been more than one music star who has started out doing this on the street. Every penny in the hat keeps food in the belly and helps that dream along towards reality for that one in a thousand musicians. This was a cold Nottingham night but that didnt prevent this guy playing some great tunes and attracting regular investment in his future. So responsible to stand outside the Halifax (Building Society) he should have had a sign up saving for a house but then thats not the dream the dream is where not having a house can take you.
