Super Star Steven Seagal
Chasing The Blues In Memphis
Steven Seagal has become a household
name as the star of dozens of action films, but he's hoping to become just as well-known for his musical endeavors. Seagal
is in Memphis recording an album tentatively titled "Mojo Priest," which finds him working in the company of such blues legends
as Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters Band members Bob Margolin and Hubert Sumlin, Koko Taylor, James Cotton, Robert Lockwood Jr. and
90-year-old guitarist David "Honeyboy" Edwards.
"Blues is my real passion, and I've always wanted
to do a blues record," Seagal tells Billboard.com. "I've had very close relationships with a lot of the great legends, many
of whom I got to play with."
A mix of Seagal originals and
what he describes as "blues classics," the album's final track list will be chosen from a pool of about 18 tunes. Among the
cuts recorded so far are "Dust My Broom" with guitarist Louisiana Red, "Wang Dang Doodle" with Taylor and "Slow Boat to China"
with Ruth Brown. "It has been an emotional, powerful experience," Seagal enthuses. "Yesterday and today, we had folks that
were there, in my opinion, at the real beginning of the blues."
Seagal has also been filming
the sessions for a potential DVD release, "because God knows, these folks won't be around forever," he says. "Little Milton,
Gatemouth Brown and R.L. Burnside were friends of mine and they were all scheduled to play on this record, but they all suddenly
[passed away]. We lost three within a month."
Seagal is hoping to finish the album before the
end of the year and then begin fielding offers for its release. "I decided to fund the record myself, which is always much
better, then shop it and see who wants to jump in," he says. "This will cost me at least $300,000 to do it right. But I want
to do it right, because I'm a perfectionist."
A North American tour is in the works next year
in support of the album. But beforehand, Seagal will spend time abroad promoting a second, non-blues CD, "Songs From the Crystal Cave," which is available internationally and should
see North American release in early 2006. He will also perform with his blues band on New Year's Eve at actor Morgan Freeman's
Ground Zero club in Clarksdale, Miss.
"I've always loved the blues since I was a child," Seagal
says. "Music is what I did first, and it's my first love and my main love."
