Re: Why i prefer Steve Morse......!


I first got into Steve Morse with The Introduction, 1984. To me it was the most versitile playing I'd heard in the era of bunk heavy metal. Fortunately he used to play at a club in Ft. Lauderdale where I lived and I was able to check him out a few times. To me he was always in the class of Satriani and Vai. I instantly became a Dregs fan and followed his solo work along with his trio and The Steve Morse Band.
When I heard he was in Deep Purple I was initially upset that Blackmore was gone, but I kind of anticipated it.
I was able to see DP before Purpendicular came out. They did a show at Sunrise Musical Theater in Ft. Lauderdale. It was the first time I saw them open a show with a song other than Highway Star (it was Fireball). They did Vavoom: Ted The Mechanic and The Purpendicular Waltz and I knew a new chapter of DP was underway. Steve strikes me as a consumate professional taking a veteran rock band to new heights. I love Purpendicular and Abandon. I just picked up Bananas and it sounds a bit more mainstream but that ain't such a bad thing.
Blackmore was given full control for Slaves and Masters and look what it produced - melodic, sissy rock.

Nothing wrong with melodic rock (if done tastefully). If you think there is you should try listening to Evil Louie, She Was and Whatsername a couple of times each and then come back here and let us know if you've changed your mind. emoticon

Tastefully is the key word.
Why do you think they relied on heavy riffs for TBRO. 'Cause crap like Truth Hurts and Love Conquers All is not Deep Purple. Anya and Solitaire sound like left overs from S&M.
Melodic rock is fine but Blackmore's melodies now are suited for Blackmore's Night.

Weak melodiies + bad songs + JLT = Slaves and Masters.

I believe there is an official release of a show at Sunrise prior to the Abandon tour.

Can you believe they turned Sunrise Musical Theater into a church. The best place in South Florida to see a show and the bible thumpers ruined it!

I thought Publix bought the Sunrise Theater? Anyway, it was a very good venue, with great acoustics.

BTW
I think SM is a great guitarist and I'm glad he plays with DP. IMHO DP has released 3 very good albums with him in the line-up, and )))s is one of the best DP records ever.

Now if only someone can light a fire under DP's ass about Thames Talent, I'ld be happy.

Interestingly Christos, I don't particularly like Evil Louie, She Was, or Whatsername. As far as melodic rock, I agree that there is nothing wrong with it if done tastefully. I do like quite a few songs from JLT era Rainbow (put in perspective, it doesn't compare too well with the rest of the DP family tree, but it's good). I think when S&M came out, it just sounded rehashed and formulaic. Blackmore/JLT had done this thing before over a decade ago, and now they're just going back to the same old formula and trying to fit in with the pop-metalers.

Still, I find songs like Truth Hurts, Breakfast in Bed, and Fire in the Basement as pretty damn good songs.
