Seasick Steve

From RNZ Music

American country blues singer Seasick Steve has packed a lot into his life. Now 70, he lived in Haight Ashbury in the 60s, owned a studio in Seattle in the 90s, and produced the first Modest Mouse album. He's worked as a carnie and a cowboy, and busked on the streets of Paris and Norway. His album 'You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks' features former Led Zeppelin bass player John Paul Jones. Marty Duda spoke to Seasick Steve just as he was about to hit the festival circuit in the UK and following another appearance on 'Later with Jools Holland'.
