Have story, need publisher
SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- You'll find all sorts along the Promenade. This is fertile pavement for people watching, and the street musicans you meet run the spectrum from young to old, well-dressed to unkempt, talented to just plain wishin'. There are flute players, guitarists, singers and percussionists. They play folk, hip-hop, classical and country. A lot of their music is original, so give them that. Some draw healthy, responsive crowds of people that fill their tips jars and buy their CDs for $5 to $10, fueling the dreams. Others, even though they've been playing for years, don't do nearly as well. Everybody has a story; this guy has a book.
