That time I asked Steve Morse if winning readers poll awards in guitar mags meant anything to him
By Steve Newton
There’s a good reason I dragged the world-famous Ear of Newt Guitar to Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom one night back in 1991 when the Dixie Dregs were playing on a bill with Ronnie Montrose.
It’s because Steve Morse was the guitarist in the Dixie Dregs, and I really wanted to score his autograph, in glorious silver felt pen, not far from those of B.B. King, Link Wray, and Montrose himself.
At the time Morse has recently been chosen best overall guitarist in Guitar Player magazine’s reader’s poll for the fifth time, so I asked him if winning those things meant anything to him.
