Tune-o-matic bridges and lipstick pickups

Steve Morse was a featured guest on the latest episode of Guit Cast. The interview opens with promoting the recent Flying Colors’ live DVD Second Flight: Live at the Z7. Then, this being a guitar podcast, conversation shifted to Steve’s gear (which part would probably only be of interest to those our readers who can tell a tune-o-matic bridge from a lipstick pickup). It wraps up with Steve’s announcement that Purple are going back to the studio in the middle of January to work on a new album with Bob Ezrin once again at the helm.

The interview segment starts at 40:45 mark into the podcast and continues till 1:10:45. Listen here or head over to GuitCast.com if this does not work for any reason:

Thanks to Shawn and Andres for the info.

    Eh, maybe this is a stupid question, but “the band” means Flying Colors or some other band?

    @Matti – ‘The band’ refers to Deep Purple, as Now What was produced by Bob Ezrin. There won’t be a new Flying Colors album any time soon unfortunately. I hope I’m wrong, but these guys are extremely busy!

    Here we go again: Deep Purple have been nominated yet again for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    Based on fan votes, they are currently in 5th place with 16% of the vote, behind Chicago, The Cars, Yes, and Steve Miller Band.

    So you may want to go through the motions and vote for DP again…who knows, maybe this time they get in…
