homeless "piano man" viral video
on: July 04, 2015, 06:37:22 PM
I believe this is the one that went viral. 

His name is Donald Gould, a former US marine, and he is playing on a public piano. 
I applaud the city of Sarasota Florida for installing those public pianos.

There are some other videos of him playing too.  Although not up to the standards of this forum, I particularly enjoyed this one where he is messing around with Bach's Toccata in D minor. 

His comment at the end made me want to try to learn this one!

Makes me regret all the times I skipped practicing as a kid... :(
