    I saw the Dregs in San Diego, Hollywood, LA, Sherman Oaks( with Mark O’Connor on guitar and fiddle) and have tix for Chicago and the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills. Every time I was at NAMM, I saw Steve Morse talking to a fan.

    I've spoken to him after a few of his shows. He spent 10 minutes talking to my son, who had just started playing bass. Really nice and friendly guy.

    That's where I first met him. He's super cool and easy to talk with.

    btw: his guitar tech lives not too far from me and is a killer guitarist on his own.

    HUGE respect for one of the greatest of ever. Been listening since the 70s. Bigger Fender mutt/Ampeg V4/Dregs fan than current MM/Engl sound-wise, but he's rescued Deep Purple and it's been great to see him making money while still playing great (in spite of hand issue).

    Incredible player... I mean way beyond so many of our guitar Gods that everyone worships around here. I love instrumental music and he is so good at coming up with great melodies. I also love his work with Purple... Perpendicular was a favorite and but haven't keep up with them after that.

    Does anyone remember when Steve was in Kansas?

    I think he is one of those players that pretty much everyone agrees is a badass.

    Morse fan from way back. Loved the Dregs. Perfect for Kansas in some ways, seemed influenced by them anyway. Surprised me by taking the Purple gig. Brave of him. Hard to replace Ritchie Blackmore.

    What made me drift away from him as the years wore on was that he was a jack of all trades. He helped me broaden my horizons, but then I delved more into different kinds of music individually, as opposed to eclectic mixes like his. But that has to do with my desire to study or learn music, moreso than just enjoying it. He is an enjoyable musician. He also seems like a great guy. Massive respect and admiration for him, for his versatility.

    I heard my first Dixie Dregs tune in 1990 and became a rabid fan even before it got to the guitar solo.

    Like many, I've taught guitar. In the late 1970s, when I'd just begun teaching, a student brought me The Great Spectacular to figure out... OUCH! Sure wasn't the solo to Stairway To Heaven...

    i like Steve. the Dixie Dregs stuff was iffy for me (great guitar but not really into songs on the whole) but i do enjoy his stuff with Kansas and Deep Purple. only seen him with Purple but he was really good.

    Saw this tour at a small club in Syracuse, it was actually overwhelming. I think he played for 3 hours if I remember right. Saw him with DP too and he was crazy good!

    Not a huge fan but he is a monster player and seems like a really good dude too

    Yes, I saw them live on the Power tour. Fantastic show in a small theater. His solo spot was incredible, but all the band tunes were great as well. He played the violin solo on Dust In The Wind!

    Cool thx for replies. And I must say didn't know he had anything to do with Kansas. :) And I hate those of you who have seen him live because I haven't. Love the DD stuff though.
