Thread Name: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Subject: RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Not that I follow the blues much anymore but I do still keep an ear tuned for what's out there & I can say ever since this thread started 2 yrs ago the name Seasick Steve would've grabbed my ear. I have never heard of him outside of this thread & I've followed the blues since I was 15 that more than an impressive 40 yrs that I haven't heard of Steve & from what I have listened to on U-tube I wouldn't care if it was another 40 yrs more that I don't hear from him.
By this thread you are giving free PR to a guy that has a gimmick rather than a unique talant or ability. Discuss someone who's worth your time & effort & who has given the blues a bit more than just a shine.
