The Naked Cowboy


Have you heard of the Naked Cowboy? He certainly doesn't need any more promotion - Robert John Burck now has an international career. He has been a fixture for some time as a New York City street performer, working Times Square, as seen above, earning as much as $1000 per day. His routine consists of playing guitar dressed only in briefs and cowboy boots. Read an interview here. What's next, a Naked Cowgirl? Too late - I understand someone is already doing it.

When we saw him, we were surprised and more impacted by his dress. I don't think his music is anything special - his focus is on merchandising and shameless self promotion. According to his own words he is looking to become a billion dollar industry. He is even marketing cellphone ringtones of himself singing/playing. I believe most people watch him for the shock value and not his music. A true product of our times.

Funny shot, one of the kind you can only find in NY. I can imagine he's more of a show-off than actually good singer ;) but your shot is absolutely great.

Well, at least he makes country songs less boring!
