World famous San Francisco bucket man

This busker in San Francisco is probably a millionaire by now – he featured in Will Smith’s movie Pursuit of Happyness. These days Larry Hunt (that’s his name) gives drumming lessons – presumably on real drums, but I can’t be sure – for $6 an hour. Hmmm, maybe the lessons are on buckets.

He also has a little business on the side – his mate hands out flyers advertising him as an ‘Experienced and patient professional’. He sang me a song for a buck. If you can call it a song.
