It takes a special kind of man to play a guitar in his underwear, and an extraordinary man to do it in the snow ... in the middle of Times Square! Such a man, of course, is The Naked Cowboy!
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio on December 23, 1970, Robert John Burck is a true Hustler. The legendary New York street musician plays his guitar in the heart of Midtown Manhattan in rain, snow, sleet, and heat. "It doesn't
matter to the Naked Cowboy," Hustle Director Mitchell K. Stuart noted, "he's always hustling!"
THE HEYMAN HUSTLE caught up with the New York institution (not "institutionalized" ... at least not yet) last year during a brutal ice and snow storm that practically shut down New York City.
"It was just one of those magical moments," Mitchell said in today's meeting, "our shoot with the Jackass crew went awry, and we were headed to the park to shoot with Dawn Marie when we saw our friend The Naked Cowboy strummin' in Times Square. Two minutes later, he was opening up to us about his life in a way he never did with anyone else... ever!"
And for you guys, we have Dawn Marie ... in a snow storm ... in a New York park ... in a hot bikini. 'Nuff said.
