It’s true, you know. He’ll be playing a concert at the Fillmore this week—apparently in a kimono—and were I a man of means, I would make the trip just out of sheer freakshow curiosity. And who knows, maybe I’d be surprised. Seagal makes a case for his blues credentials in today’s interview with Aidin Vaziri:
Q: These are original songs?
A: Well, I had to do a couple of covers because on the album I had the whole Muddy Waters band and I wanted to show respect to them, so I did a couple of songs by Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy.
Q: How did you get those guys to play on your album? Did you use rope?
A: I’m friends with all those guys. I live in Memphis. I’ve been in the blues for some 30-odd years. I know them all.
