Thread Name: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Subject: RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Hello ALL,
I went to see Seasick Steve at the Newcastle Academy lastnight with a bunch of mates. We are all lovers of lots of different kinds of music. I have been in the music business 25 years (professionally too) The guy loved Seasick Steve and I just got pissed off as the guy can't play in time and was really really sloppy. I had to leave, even the doorman were amazed! Not as much as me I hoped he'd be great. But I being a musician I can play in time and hold a groove, lastnight even his drummer was having to speed up with him. It freaked me out. Stevie Ray Vaughan is turning in his early grave!!
Sorry but Seasick Steve is very overated!!!
