Deep Purple's current guitarist. He was with Dixie Dregs and Kansas before them. The Dregs had a good song called "Bloodsucking Leeches".

Truly amazing player, has both chops and taste. But he's not mainstream enough to make it into the Hall of Fame.

At least 20 years ago, I saw Steve Morse play solo. For part of the concert he played along with unreleased Dregs tapes. I can't think of anyone else I'd pay to see play with tapes but I was happy to do so for him. It was great.

Seemed to me that every time I saw him, the bulk of the audience was guitarists. This isn't a wide enough base for a good career so it's good that he got gigs with Kansas and Deep Purple.

Steve Morse represents the epitomy of the electric guitarist. Composing for classical, rock, metal, country, and jazz, Steve has the capacity to thrill the soul.

His technical ability is unsurpassed, but it is his compositional skills that should take him over the top.

He has influenced hundreds of guitarists including Eric Johnson and Jimmy Herring.

I would never miss one of his Dregs or Trio reunion tours.

I would love to see him in the R&R Hall of Fame.

genius ahead of his time ,
and his compositions improve with the passage of time .
If he was to never be inducted into the RnR HOF, then it should be officially renamed " the mistake by the lake "
