I first saw this gentleman busking on the streets of York (England) with my friend playing his electric Violin; and I have to say he is truly an amazing Violinist...!!

Background:Ed Alleyne-Johnson is a British electric violinist and prolific busker. He has been busking for over 20 years, since he was a Fine Art student at Oxford University. He uses an electric violin that he carved with a kitchen knife, a custom pedal-board, and an amplifier which he modified to run off rechargeable batteries. This setup has enabled him to perform on the street in almost every major city in Europe, and across the United States and Canada.He can often be seen performing in Chester city centre, near the Grosvenor shopping precinct, and more recently on the streets of York.

Here is a few songs that I have enjoyed....

Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine

THe Police - Every Breath you Take

Metallica - The Unforgiven

And just for fun: The Simpsons Theme

His official MySpace: www.myspace.com/edalleynejohnson

You can buy any of his albums from Amazon which are....

* Purple Electric Violin Concerto (1992)
* Ultraviolet (1994)
* Purple Electric Violin Concerto II (2001)
* Symphony (2008)

The Violin to me is a very sad instument, that the player needs to feel its pain and sorrow in order to become a talented artist.

With the type of music I like, it's probably pretty obvious, but he's awesome in my book! He now needs to get a metal band!
