Listen Up, Vegas
If you ever find yourself in Las Vegas, think twice before throwing your money into a bottomless and unrewarding slot machine. There are countless glitzed out stages with scantily clad performers offering over-priced bottle service in the city of sin. Have you ever stopped to watch the real musicians and singers outside? They are there and some deserve much more than a bank disguised as a recycled slurpee cup or chewing gum spotted sidewalk as a stage. Especially this guy singing “Hey Joe,” by Jimi Hendrix. His voice is hardened by time and one can only imagine what the panorama of his gaze interprets. He sits cross-legged propping his guitar in his lap then begins to sing “Hey Joe” with the exact type of breath-taking despair and dejection that Jimi would have intended. It’s easy to imagine him sharing the stage with Jimi Hendrix to perform one woefully epic show.
Where is Drew?
His name is Drew Dunbar but no one can locate him since the video was uploaded onto YouTube. Raul Diego, who uploaded the video with permission from Dunbar says, “I have an original track by this man, which I want to release on YouTube, but would like to locate him first so he can make some money with it.” Hopefully, Drew Dunbar somehow stumbles across the YouTube video so that he can pridefully claim his original music. He is definitely among the most deserving of people and has the talent to back it up. The cover is flawless and the man seems like a sincere dude with good intentions. For now, Dunbar is as out of reach as Jimi Hendrix.
