Fact No. 4 – The Crazy Piano Guy

I sang with Colin Huggins on the downtown platform of the Q train at Union Station a few days ago.  He’s ‘the crazy piano guy’ who sets up a busted old upright down in the subways and plays the sh*t out of some classical music, Beatles tunes, etc.  He was nice!  After I sang, he said: ‘I bet you didn’t think you’d be doing this when you woke up this morning.’


He gave me his business card, which reads: ‘Pianist / Rock Star / World’s Happiest Man’.  I would characterize him as a cross between David Bowie, Alicia Keys and your grade school piano teacher.  In other words: pure genius.
