Frank "Son" Seals (August 13, 1942 – December 20, 2004) was an American electric blues guitarist and singer. In 2009, Seals was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Seals was born in Osceola, Arkansas, where his father, Jim "Son" Seals, owned a small juke joint, called the Dipsy Doodle Club. He began performing professionally by the age of 13, first as a drummer with Robert Nighthawk and later as a guitarist.
Bad Axe" is not Son Seals' best album. that would be "Midnight Son" or "Nothing But The Truth". But there is some really good stuff here, like the tough, mid-tempo grind of "Don't Pick Me For You Fool" and the funky, riff-driven "Can't Stand To See Her Cry", and the arrangements, clanging R&B piano and some ferocious guitar playing, are almost uniformly excellent. The late, great Frank 'Son' Seals played searing, hard-edged lead guitar and sang his gritty blues and R&B in a huge, raw and throaty voice, backed.
Bad Axe is the fourth studio album (and fifth album) by Son Seals. It was originally released by Alligator Records in 1984. It was produced by Son Seals and Bruce Iglauer Track listing. "Son Seals–Bad Axe". Retrieved 17 December 2013.
