'Starving' guitarist sues for tips in DC Metro

He is not asking for 15$ an hour.  Only what people will give him of there own free will.   


It is an iconic image of the struggling artist in America: A musician wielding a guitar, saxophone, cello, or other instrument serenading commuters outside a metropolitan subway system. Their reward is whatever cash or coins are voluntarily dropped into an open instrument case.

That's how guitarist Alex Young was earning money last year, playing for a steady stream of riders on the Washington, D.C. Metro system.

Lay a tambourine on the ground, if it happens to fill up with money, so be it, he wasn't soliciting, was he?
There's always a work around.
