I know that Sean is recognized as being a blues great but it kills me that he was labeled as a "blues" guy in the industry. I was listening to a radio interview by him not too long ago (can't remember where I found it, I'll go see if I can find it again) and he was expressing that he didn't agree with being put on a subsidiary type label that focused on blues music.Seriously Nice pic of Sean. Latest V.G Mag made mention of a New Release , " Sean's Blues " A Memorial Retrospective (Landslide Records) Previously released & un-released tracks from 1996 - 2002.
Great talent just starting to bloom. RIP Sean.
When I listen to Sean, I can hear that music really going over well with the masses. I saddens me to the depths of my heart that more people don't know about him. He also jokingly says that maybe if he started working out and got a six pack that he'd be more successful...haha.
In my rock and roll dreams, I sometimes think about how I hope to have some sort of platform where I can share music like that with everyone on a large scale. I'd love to cover a few of his songs (although I know I won't be able to do them justice) on my next few albums.
Those of you who were close to Sean - can you tell us a little more about his frustration with the label and the overall business of things? As a musician going through all of that now, I'd love to hear more about it from his angle.
