Saw my first
official London Underground busker at Piccadilly Circus. It was quite weird really as I could hear some really loud music and I thought, wow - whoever that busker is, has managed to smuggle some top speakers onto the corridors. Wonder if it's an official one? And lo and behold it was. In fact two tube staff had just finished taking some official pictures of him and where clearing away their tripod when I walked past.

The busker himself was playing guitar and was quite good. He was on a little semi circular picture of a wooden floor trying to give the impression that he was on stage and Carling's logo's were stamped across the "floor". So it would appear that the bottom of the escalator on leaving Piccadilly Circus from the Piccadilly Line is an official busking position.

I'm waiting to see the first "wars" between official and unofficial ones......watch this space.
