It all started with a clarinet…

Steve Morse spoke to The Sessions. His enthusiasm when he talks about playing the guitar is truly infectious, and that’s probably the best thing you can get infected these days.

The chat is rather long, nearly 50 minutes, so pour yourself your favourite drink, kick back and enjoy!

Thanks to Mike Whiteley for the heads up.

    I started with a clarinet too!! Everybody has to start somewhere. Playing guitar now, but certainly not is Morse’s or Blackmore’s league. It’s all about the fun of playing.

    I’ve posted numerous times about Steve Morse The Great. Chatted with many of us post gigs including a Dixie Dregs gig in a small dinner theater here in New Jersey long since closed. Said dinner theater trivia, Steve Howe was the last gig played there before they shut it down. Anyway, the rest of The Dregs, after mingling with those who briefly hung out, left the place followed by the rest of the staff. An hour plus later, there were maybe six of us left with Steve. The conversation between he and a guy who was also a pilot, was more than enjoyable as I am a big time aviation enthusiast. The owner walked over and said, and to paraphrase, “Guys, I wanna lock up and go home.” Then a pre Flying Colors gig in midtown Manhattan, a picture with Steve and he told the guy with my camera to check because he may have blinked his eyes. Who else would care about the fan/supporter base like that?!

    When I hear ‘inspirational speakers’, I usually think: what a load of generic ball cocks. When I listen to Morse speak, I am inspired.

    Nothing like to see a Steve Interview:

    Humble as always (sorry Ritche) but always admiring the music. Interesting to know about his first gigs and how he went to Miami University, very funny to know that he has the guy that didn’t know anything. Hehehehe, irony!!!
