Seatrain have today’s almost forgotten track
Seatrain was a Boston based band with an interesting pedigree…members had previously been in bands like Earth Opera, The Blues Project and, even, Bill Monroes’s Bluegrass Boys…they made albums for both Capitol and A&M but, sadly, rarely rose above opening act status other than in the Northeastern US…the fiddle player, Richard Greene, later went on to be a mainstay in Loggins and Messina’s band, and most of the others found work as well, but, to me, this is one of those bands that fit into the “coulda-woulda-shoulda” category…
Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then.
His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
