This morning, however, we're going back to his musical roots and a group he formed in the 1970's called Dixie Dregs. They played instrumental music that combined country, folk, rock and bluegrass into a unique sound that's hard to categorize.
To introduce the group to those who don't know them, I've selected four early tracks. Let's begin at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1978 with "The Bash".
Next, from 1981, here's an improvised "jam session" where the band just fool around together. Despite a relatively poor-quality recording, it's a lot of fun.
From the same year, here's "Pride O' The Farm".
And finally, from the Dawn Of The Dregs reunion tour in 2018, here's "Go For Baroque".
And - just because I can - here's Steve Morse and Deep Purple at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1996, performing the group's classic "When A Blind Man Cries". Just listen to his guitar technique, and marvel.
It's hard to believe Steve Morse is currently 69 years old. Where did the time go?
