Biography Big Ed Sullivan - Popa Chubby.
Big Ed Sullivan hails from Brooklyn New York. He grew up right near the Gowanus Canal and lord knows he didn’t do no fishin there. He would however spend hour upon hour honing his craft on guitar and harmonica while he watched his friends fall victim to drugs and gangfights. Yeah says Ed, It was an escape for me but it probably saved me from going down the road to ruin. It was this very escape as well as the influences of great blues and rockabilly artists that led Ed to create the subjects for his own songs. Slim Harpo, Albert Collins, Danny Gatton, Link Wray. All have a place in Ed’s musical pantheon of gods.
I first met Ed about 7 years ago in a Greenwich Village club where we both were playing. I had a 1965 Gibson Firebird and when Ed pulled out a 69 Gibson of the same model we became instant friends. We hung out and jammed together many time s over the next few years when one day Ed played me some of his own songs. I was floored by the images he painted of Rock and Roll Zombies and Flying Saucers. Haunted houses, Fast women and cars and mostly that shredding guitar.
I have never heard anyone play the guitar the way Ed does. He has a way of taking a traditional blues or swing lick and stamping his very own personality on it. His slide playing is nothing but wild. he gets to notes that I can only imagine and he does it in a way that puts a smile on your face every time.
"Big Ed is a mainstay of the New York City scene. He has been a featured performer at N.Y.C. blues palace Manny’s Car Wash. Ed has also been featured on many New York arera festivals and was a founding member of The Rebel Rockers a band produced by Brian Setzer."
