Thread Name: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Subject: RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
I've felt all along that Steve is OK, a winning entertainer if not a virtuoso. The answer to the original question is that he's not at all "big" in the US ~ he's an American expatriate known pretty much only in Europe.

I'm sure that a lot of U.S. 'catters feel ~ like I do ~ that "I could do that." But, we haven't, and he has. More power to him.

Kevin's reference to Boxcar Willie is probably "spot-on."
