GUEST,Ada Where does Steve Suffet come from (20) RE: Where does Steve Suffet come from 16 Jan 07


I can't top what Joel wrote, but here's a little more info, some of it actually truthy.

Steve was once a finalist in the "World's Biggest Teddy Bear" contest. He lost out to a Yeti but was featured as a caveman in a fashion magazine. He's about to celebrate a significant birthday, which, strangely enough, is not exactly his 30th but is a significant anniversary of that event.

His wife Marilyn has learned to tolerate his guitars all over the house, his groupies calling at 2am, and (worst of all) his philately. She's a strong woman, that Marilyn. (And just for the record, he wasn't REALLY married to that Barbary doll; she was just another of his groupies. Anyway, it's all in the past, before he met Marilyn.)

Steve's musical career really got started when he borrowed a guitar from the late "Sis" Cunningham and sang "Pastures of Plenty" for her, and she founded a new chapter of Steve's groupies. Soon thereafter he shared a cab with Pete Seeger, and the rest is oral history.

Steve was educated in Rochester, New York, where he was a classmate of a future famous Hollywood writer, but left to continue his education in New York City, where he enrolled in second grade. In New York he learned to talk like a cab driver, which has hampered his career ever since, to such a degree, indeed, that he had to become an educator to get any respect. He is President-for-Life of the New York Philatelic Bandits.
