Steven has a lot of energy,that's obvious. Plus, he was into music in a very big way long before he became an actor. He stated in an interview in the UK, that he probably loves music more than he does acting. I saw him perform at the Shepherds Bush empire theatre, over here in the UK, and let me tell you,he was having a ball singing and playing those beautiful guitars of his. He is very, very good. I really had no idea what to expect, but I somehow knew I would not be disappointed.The sight of Steven standing there on the stage tapping his feet and bobbing his head to the rhythm was sheer bliss. I donn't think he's a man who ever disappoints at anything he does. I really love that guy. I hope he continues to do movies, and sing for years to come. I also does another UK tour.

Steven Seagal is indeed an icon. I saw him perform in Atlantic City and it was an incredible experience. It is clear he loves the blues. And I love him. He is big, strong, highly intellegent, extremely talented, and very kind!!!! Steven, if you perchance read this--don't stop making movies or CDs!!Pat
