Seasick Steve: Wayfarin' stranger

It’s been a long, hard road for the 70-something veteran who partied with Janis Joplin and lived next door to Kurt Cobain, but Seasick Steve says he’s still a ramblin’ man at heart.

‘Seasick’ Steve Wold was feeling more than halfway dead when he got the call that changed his life. The 65-year-old was slowly recuperating from a near-fatal heart attack, feeling weak and old and used-up; a part-time musician whose time had never come. He was persuaded to appear on Jools Holland’s Annual Hootenanny New Year’s Eve 2006 show anyway.
