Next Week


HE’S GOT THE BLUES, TOO
STEVEN SEAGAL

Steven Seagal is many things: action-film hero in flicks such as “Above the Law” and “Under Siege,” martial arts expert, animal rights activist, even a reserve deputy sheriff in Louisiana. But he’s also a pretty accomplished guitarist, having shared the stage with blues idols including B.B. King and Bo Diddley. Seagal shows off his chops with his band, Thunderbox.

A REAL STAND-UP GUY
BRIAN REGAN
