Public opinion mutes Dutch off-tune saxophonist

`Dutch police have reportedly confiscated the saxophone of a busker who played so badly that his audience complained.

According to the Dutch news agency ANP, the 43-year-old used to perform at the railway station at Leiden in the west of the country to the dismay of passengers, who found his instrument an ill wind.

He was the only person to believe that the station concourse “did justice to the sound quality of his instrument” by amplifying it, as he told policemen who served him with a summons and confiscated his saxophone.’
