‘Piano Kid’ meets ‘Piano Man’

From the Department of “Because It’s Friday, That’s Why” :

Bradley Bartlett-Roche is pretty well known around Boston. He plays for tips around Faneuil Hall as the “Piano Kid,” partly because the “Piano Man” was already taken by another artist, and partly because he’s a kid. He’s 13.

When that other artist — Billy Joel — played Fenway Park last night, the kid got a break.

The kid’s got chutzpah. He had campaigned for a month to get on stage.
