A homeless ex-Marine plays Bach, the Beatles and Styx on a public sidewalk piano.
The skinny, weathered piano man is Donald Gould, 51 who became a cyberspace sensation when a video of one of his performances was posted on Facebook the other day and drew 1.5 million shares overnight.
“What I hope to accomplish is to touch a lot of people, make them feel good,” Gould told.
He grew up playing music and his passion endured while he was a Marine and a college student. About 7 years ago he ended up on the streets after struggles with drugs and alcohol, the station said.
