Music

I started playing music professionally after leaving college in 1975 to play with my high school friend, Steve Morse, in the Dixie Dregs. That lasted through 1983 when the band broke up (first time).

To cut to the chase and hear some Dreg’s music quickly, select any of the following full album playlists. I suggest just clicking through the you tube playlist for each album, stopping on anything you like.

By the way, in case you are not familiar with it, the Playlist button where you can select individual songs is in the upper left corner of the embedded window, or you can just hit the ‘next’ arrow button at the bottom.

Mind’s Eye 1986 – (wikipedia) Vinnie Moore’s first album with a Tony McAlpine on keyboards and Tommy Aldridge on drums!
“Hero Without Honor” has a nice little solo I did on my six string with a vibrato. Starts around 5:16 in…

The Mistakes – (at Mike Keneally’s site) a veritable supergroup (hah!) with Prairie Prince, Mike Keneally, and Henry Kaiser. Some good detail from Mike’s site.

Crazy Backwards Alphabet – (wikipedia) very ‘outside’ and interesting. Some people don’t understand it and I understand why…but seriously, what’s not to like:
