Steve the aviator

There are two things Steve Morse can talk about enthusiastically no end — guitars and airplanes. Here is an example of him doing mostly the latter. However, when the conversation slips to music at around the 11 minute mark, he mentions that the whole 2020 Deep Purple tour is in the process of being moved to 2021 and the only gig that took place in 2020 might be that’s it for the band. For the non-fliers, there’s also some mildly amusing anecdotage towards the end of him piloting an ancient Tu-154 while on tour in Russia.

Thanks to Martin for the info.

    Fascinating. I didn’t even think he flew the plane for the Dregs shows. That’s way before Bruce Dickinson did his thing. Relating flying and playing guitar makes him seem like a genius to me.

    No doubt a genius. I remember him saying a potential career path was becoming a doctor. The only thing missing in this interview is that he quit music for a short spell during the ’80’s to fly for a commercial airline. Not only a genius, but a wonderful human being.
