I had Dixie Dregs cassette tapes in the late 80s and early 90s when I was taking guitar lessons. My guitar teacher made them for me. My teacher had a Tele. I never got to see the Dregs play, but I saw Steve Morse on accident. In other words, I had no idea I would be seeing him.
"Cat Food" is my favorite Dixie Dregs number.
I went to a concert where there was Lynryd Skynrd and Deep Purple. I knew neither band had original lineups at all, but when Deep Purple was playing, I was just amazed. I had no idea who that guy was, as I was way back in the back at the amphitheater. So I moved to the front, and I recognized Steve Morse, as I knew what he looked like. He wasn't playing his modified Tele creation with Deep Purple. He was playing his Ernie Ball Music Man guitar.
