What Steve did next

Whatever happened to Steve Taylor?

You know: the guy first seen on these shores satirically encouraging Greenbelters to become clones and last seen hyperventilating on-stage while fronting the rather good but under-appreciated Chagall Guevara. The one who went on to produce Sixpence None the Richer (hmm, what happened to them?), created and sold a record label and then said he'd to return to his first love: film.

It looks like he's stuck with cinema. His first film, The Second Chance is coming up for release in a week or so.

I'd like to wait until I've had a chance to see it before I come to any conclusions, but I'm full of prejudice. Michael W. Smith is the leading actor; the website tells you how to organise a church group trip, provides a study guide and even includes an endorsement by George Bush.

I'd hoped for more from Steve. But who knows? If it ever crosses the Atlantic maybe I'll give it another chance.
