Mick Jagger meets Keytar Bear - on a New York sidewalk

That's got to be our Keytar Bear, right? Hopefully, he stays well away from Times Square - furry performers get stabbed there.

Those NYC Keytar Bears

They are coming up to Boston, playing music, and then spawning little Keytar Bears!

Wow, the old organ grinder

Wow, the old organ grinder with the dachund outside of the State House is going to be jelly.

Check out the dude with earbuds though, walking right by Mick Jagger AND Keytar bear and he's like "meh" to both.

Not sure Mick was the videographer

I bet someone sent that to him and he just tweeted it out.

I'm also not sure that that IS our KTB. He looks a little different, but then it's probably just all that NYC dirt and grime.

The shtick is almost as tired as people here fetishizing a dude in a bear costume.

Aw feeling grumpy?

A fellow like Keytar Bear is what gives a city local color. Same for The Hat Sisters (John Michael Gray requiesat in pace). For all the tourist attractions what gives Baltimore one of its most interesting aspects is that John Waters pulled from Baltimorean culture to concoct his stories. Keytar Bear also comes across as very friendly and just plain nice.

The little, intimate elements of a city are as much of the character as the big text book stories.

I don't think that he's the same

That guy looks shorter and stockier. Also, Keytar bear can play a lot faster.

(I'll be embarrassed if he is the same!)

The answer!

Thanks folks for playing, "Is that OUR Keytar Bear?" The answer is yes it is the Boston Keytar in NYC.

(I asked on his Facebook page and he confirmed that it is he in Mick's tweet.)
