gHSTS n gUITARS inspired James

Street musicians have been invited to perform at the New Museum as part of artist Pawel Althamer's exhibition The Neighbors (ongoing until April 20th). The sound is mic'ed and then amplified into the 3rd floor exhibition room. I met guitarist James Joseph of gHSTS n gUITARS performing after me, as he was setting up in the lobby. 

What inspires street musician James of gHSTS n gUITARS?

"Life, Living,
Solving problems that governmental organizations set up to slow me and other people down,

Little kids, energy from children help me tap into energy I'd forgotten about- incredibly powerful,

women, nice bottle of wine,
420 friendly."

You can say that James is one inspired guy!
