Police Send Street Musician Home To Practice Because He Sucked At Music

Police sent a busker home to practice, saying: “Just because you can play Wonderwall does not mean you should.”

Officers stopped the guitarist from performing his set, claiming he was playing “very badly and loudly.” A statement on the police website said the busker “certainly did not sound like Liam Gallagher.” The man, who has not been identified, was playing on the evening of the 17 August when police intervened.

Finally, somebody said it.

I cannot tell you how many time I’ve seen some tone deaf moron screaming into a microphone on the subway with a very out of tune guitar. Nobody tells them to shut the hell up because they feel bad for them, but does just playing music get you a participation trophy? Hell no. If you suck, go home.

The best part of all of this? “Wonderwall.” Of course he’s playing “Wonderwall.” That alone should get him booed off the corner.
