o STEVE LIEBERMAN THE GANGSTA RABBI
Yeah--30 years--15 CD's--and still dilligently playing late weeknight open mic's with the attitute of someone who's actually good playing Madison Square Garden.--hey WAIT-HE DID PLAY MADISON SQUARE GARDEN ON 9/24/2008 with Weezer! this dude rocks hard!!
LONG LIVE THE GANGSTA RABBI!!!!
6/3/2008 saw the release of Lieberman's 14th CD- "PSYCH WARD"--the punk-fusion rock opera type thingy telling the story of his committment to a 'facility' for the results of a bi-polar dark cycle. some of the critics actually like this one. it actually landed him a 3 hour radio show on a pretty big college station in New York--and a show in a big club on Long Island.
He can't play the guitar--so he does everything on overdriven basses and flutes--the basses held upside-down and backwards--it's crazy stuff--but some are devoted to it. The combined effects of 'passive racism' (lots of clubs won't have anybody with the word "Rabbi" in their name) and the effects of bi-polar disorder on the ability to self-promote and inability of hired publicity men to help have kept Lieberman pretty much confined to the open mic scene where he usually wows the crowds albeit small but seldom gets asked to play a 'real' show--ok--now for the hype
