Musicians have always been with us. From cave dwellers knocking out a tune on a blade of grass, to Roman trumpeters at the Colosseum, to buglers marching into battle, to Led Zeppelin at Wembley Arena. But we only ever hear about famous musicians and their stories of decadence and overindulgence.
There is a common misconception that professional musicians spend half their time playing in seedy bars and the other half queuing up in soup kitchens, but for every famous musician there are 1000 working in the background making a good living with a wealth of interesting stories to tell.
Just a few seconds is a story of a musician whose career takes him from the roughest London pubs to private parties for the mega rich and famous. From near starvation to a Jet Set life in Gstaad. From the brink of fame to the Birdy Song. From market stall to restaurant owner. From guitar teacher to squash an karate teacher. It is an amusing and heartrending story of perseverance showing how the road to success can lead us down the strangest of paths.
