For over two decades, Katey Sagal has reigned as one of television's most popular actors. She became an instant fan favorite as Peggy Bundy, the hilarious redheaded bombshell on Married...With Children. In the early 2000s, Sagal was pegged to play the voice of Turanga Leela, the one eyed mutant on Futurama. Today, Katey Sagal rules the television throne as Gemma Teller Morrow, the matriarch of The Sons of Anarchy, a role which earned Sagal a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama.
With all the acting accolades Katey has achieved, it's easy to overlook her first true talent: singing. In 1976, Sagal made her professional recording debut singing with The Group With No Name. The band was signed to Neil Bogart's Casablanca Record label. She went on to sing backup for musical heavy hitters including Bob Dylan, Etta James, Bette Midler, Gene Simmons and Tanya Tucker. She has released three solo albums, most recently this year's Covered (E1Music). The new record finds Sagal covering some of her favorite songs, including Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" and Jackson Browne's "For a Dancer." Sagal's vocal styling is rooted in Soul and Blues with a heavy singer-songwriter influence. She has also been featured on the Sons of Anarchy soundtracks.
Katey visited Amoeba Hollywood to do a little shopping a few weeks ago. There is nothing cooler than watching Peggy Bundy dig for vinyl! To kick things off, she tells a story about sneaking out to a club as a 15 year old in Hollywood. A big fan of the Blues, Sagal picks up J.B. Hutto & The Hawks and Albert King. She also digs up a copy of Mother Earth's Bring Me Home on vinyl. From vinyl classics like Christmas And The Beads of Sweat by Laura Nyro to Spirit in the Dark by Aretha Franklin, Katey has some great finds. See for yourself!
