Thread Name: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
Subject: RE: Seasick Steve - how big in the US?
The original question is based on a kind of funny premise: the assumption that someone making good, authentic blues would by default be recognized, championed and "big" in the USA, where blues began. If the answer had been "yes, he's huge and all the fans of real, proper blues love him", would it really have made any difference?
