Saw on the news that a person playing a cello at a New York subway station was hit in the head with a bottle by a passerby. Not making light of this at all but sure am glad they weren't playing a banjo.

I saw that too. My daughter's team is going to the Bronx again twice this spring but she's out for the season with a knee. I am sad for my daughter but relieved we aren't going back there. After last year it tops my list of worst places I've ever been, and number 2 is a very distant second.

I live in New York so I get more details.
The guy was hit in the head with his own water bottle by a random woman.
This was the second time this year he was attacked.
He will not be playing in the subway any more. For obvious reasons.

Yeah the subway sucks!

Well he WAS paying a cello. In NYC subway, he is lucky he still has the cello.

What did the first chair violin player say to the cellist?
"You're S#&T."

Goes to show you if you're going to banjo busk it'd be best to have a eleventeen pound BLUEGRASS banjo for self defense instead of some wimpy open back. If The Orange Blossom Special at 200BPM doesn't stop'em a tap across the forehead should slow'em down enough to get away. Just can't be too keerful these days. banjered

I believe he is a med student. People tried to still his instrument he’s been assaulted but this time a woman picked up a glass,metal bottle and hit him in the back of the head . I think he’s found a safer place to busk . Good luck to him.

If they were playing a banjo, they may have been hit with two bottles angry
