Happy B-day, Steve Morse

..maybe the best guitarist you've never heard of--kudos if you have. Steve WAS named Best Guitarist for 5 yrs in a row by Guitar Player magazine in the 80's..and was the founder of the cult fave Dixie Dregs. He also played on a coupla Kansas albums in the late 80's, and for the last dozen years or so has been with Deep Purple. But as incredible as Steve is on the fretboard, that version of DP feels like a "tribute" band to me.  Steve turns 56 today [7/28]..and about 20 yrs ago, lived in the El Dorado Hills area, occasionally coming to my studio to visit/perform. Besides being a helluva nice guy, he also worked part time as a commercial airline co-pilot. In my view...Steve Morse ranks right up there with the elite guitarists of all time, as far as technical proficiency.  Too bad he's not even MORE famous...
