The coolest thing about strolling around an outdoor marketplace like London’s Piccadilly Circus is that you just never know who you might spot. Perhaps you’ll see a famous actress doing some shopping, or maybe a legendary musician will swing by to perform one of their hit songs with a local busker.
Sound unlikely? Think again!
In June 2017, British rock singer and songwriter Rod Stewart approached a street musician who happened to be playing his 1969 song “Handbags and Gladrags.” At first, it’s not clear that anyone in the vicinity knew that a famous musician was in their midst, but as soon as he starts singing in his trademark raspy voice, everyone around takes notice!
Soon, a crowd had gathered and the singer who usually charges hundreds of dollars for a ticket to one of his concerts gave a very entertaining performance, completely free.
What a fabulous scene to stumble upon for everyone passing by!
