Thread Name: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Subject: RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
He's not particularly well known here in the states. Doubt he's be a sell out in any clubs. Someone may bring him over as an opening act and he could gain a following that way. Or get picked up by the William Morris Agency and get on some of the late night talk shows. As I said in an earlier post he's entitled to make a living and he's, obviously done his homework. He's being successful and has a machine running on all cylinders. Good for him. The 'three string guitar' thing has gotten him attention, but utimately one has to deliver the goods in a sustained performance. Apparently, from some of the posts he's been doing that. So, is he 'the real deal' ala SRV, Beck, Clapton, Hound Dog Taylor, Muddy Waters, Mississippi John Hurt, Hendrix, Buddy Guy, etc.? If he produces a strong body of work over a period of time...why not?
