Action star Steven Seagal is set to tour the UK and Denmark with his band Thunderbox, and plans to launch a charity to provide underprivileged youngsters in Britain with guitars
Seagal is better known for his martial arts prowess, but has also been playing guitar since the age of five. He has one of the world’s most important blues guitar collections, comprising instruments that belonged to blues legends Albert King, Muddy Waters and Jimi Hendrix.
With his new initiative he hopes to spread the enjoyment that guitar music has brought him, saying, “Music is the language of the gods that can bring all people together. What better starting point than learning to play the guitar?”
