Live from the tractor

Steve Morse has appeared on the Stalwarts Of Music podcast. From inside his tractor in Florida, no less. The Bandland festival is mentioned as “happened last month”, so the interview must have taken place some time in January 2024. It’s a long chat, with lots of hay overturned, and Steve’s tenure in Purple discussed in depth. Dig in!

Thanks to stevemorse.com for the heads-up.

    I give this young interviewer kudos for asking not typical questions. Halfway through at this moment!

    Ouch, I didn’t realize that Janine was still among us when this was recorded. Steve is upbeat about her condition – what a bummer.

    The interview was certainly different!

    A wonderful interview with Steve Morse & the interviewer was good also. Morse: ‘melody brings people in, long solo’s sends them away’ something like that & so true. Also the Indian link with John McLaughlin was profound, that is the McLaughlin that I am drawn to a little here & there, not as much with the fusion & definitely not with the jazz. Nice to hear about the High Tension Wires era, a superb album that is. Following the second Kansas album & everything that went with that record company shite. Was that Enya he mentions in regards to the moving Gaelic composition, it sure sounded like it. I know what he means, nice to hear that. That Celtic Irish & Scottish connection that we hear in certain Morse music. Two Purpendicular songs mentioned as his favourites also with Uncommon Man, nice one. Thanks for the interview. Down on the farm indeed. Cheers.

    That should be ‘Pride o’ the Farm” from the Dixie Dregs ‘Dregs of the Earth’ album.
    A typical up tempo chicken pickin jig, something like that. Cheers.
