In 2005, Los Angeles Times writer Steve Lopez was looking for an idea on the streets of Los Angeles. Instead, he found Nathaniel Ayers and his music. Since then Lopez and Ayers have become friends and Ayers – a gifted but mentally ill musician – has become known to everyone who reads Lopez’ columns in the Times. Take a look at the 60 Minutes video story about the two men, read Lopez’ articles, and learn more about the story of Mr. Ayers and Mr. Lopez in Online | Advanced.

I originally wrote about Mr. Ayers and Mr. Lopez in The Musician and the Writer at the ESL Podcast blog.
