Talk To My Ass, Part II


We wrote about action-hero/guitar warrior/Buddhist Memphian Steven Seagal's rockin' blues tour a few days back. Next Wednesday, he's bringing it all back home with a concert at the New Daisy.

We also wrote about our favorite song on big Steve's new "Mojo Priest" album, titled, "Talk to My Ass." After reading this interview with a writer from the San Francisco Chronicle, we think we might know who Steve's singing about. A sample exchange:

Q: As far as you know, are you the only blues-playing Buddhist?

A: I'm sure that's not true at all. There's probably hundreds of thousands of blues-playing Buddhists.

Q: Does the Buddhist philosophy really work with the blues?

A: I would have to say this is the weirdest interview I've had yet.
