Busker Brian interview

Welcome to the Buskerbrian journal
The Labyrinth Busker journal was written while busking Europe between January,1996 and August, 2000. The first of these extensive diaries is entitled Things we must do - and can be read here.
There are around 55 segments (or books) of the diary, but only about six are online.
Although I first came to Europe as a busker in June 1994 I did not start the diary until the dates mentioned above. 
The exception to this is The Green Busker, which deals with my first few months as a raw rookie busker in 1994. This has been written more like a memoir - and it received various additions and edits over the years. It is currently receiving a further edit by request. Buskerbrian will always respond swiftly to such requests, especially in matters of privacy or the protection of intellectual property rights. 

Welcome to the LBJ. You can find the "Green Busker" in larger font here
That link will take you to the large font "Companion" page, where an index of the chapters can be found. As with all LBJ online 'books', it is recommended to print the chapters out and read at your own leisure. That way, it is easier to drift into the life of a busker finding his path through the streets of Europe.
The journal was written between January 1996 and August 2000 as a handwritten diary. The "Green Busker" was not written 'live', but retrospectively (in 1997).
