Last monday, I went to a concert. Not your average gig, but a Steven Seagal concert. Yes, the actor. The man starred in numerous succesful actionflicks in the early 90’s but over te last 15 years, his career has faded. As his pshysique expanded, the budgets for his movies shrunk in an equally dramatical manner. Nevertheless, Seagal regained a strong following – including myself.
So between releasing direct-to-video actionmovies like they are wet farts, he’s currently trying various new ventures, like his reality cop show “Steven Seagal Lawman“. Meanwhile, he has been playing the guitar for most of his life, and released two albums in 2004 and 2006. The first one was a mix of at least 100 genres from pop to world music, and the second contained blues music exclusively. His European tour in 2014 is based on that second album. It’s blues. By Seagal. But how was it?
