The dude DEFINITELY lacks Blackmore's precision.

Steve rules the world on a guitar
I have seen Deep Purple 3 times with Steve and it just does not sound the same.

I don't like anyone bashing Steve "The GREAT One" Morse! He is the greatest guitarist in world history! I grew up with him in our hometown of Augusta, GA, and we played the same clubs, dives & joints in rival bands. It was intimidating, but we always were proud of his genius, and was very happy when he left to show the WORLD what he could do, and fulfill his destiny.

lol then he plays box patterns
I agree no one can replace Blackmore, their all good guitarists but far from Blackmores feel of music 🎵

I said this in other thread. Steve Morse is just too kind of a guy. With his incredible technique and knowledge on guitar, he could stole the spotlight in Deep Purple just like he did in Dixie and SMB, by 100% arranging and changing the old songs styles to his favor, and dominate the concerts with his fingers. But he retain most of important Blackmore notes as tributes to him and not to make fans confused, while still injecting his styles here and there. He's more of a team player with Purple guys, thus sometimes I feel he was too minimalist and not crossing the border with his guitar playing, something Blackmore did really well with Purple Mk2 in seventies period that came like thunder and lightning to all of us Purple fans. Nevertheless, Steve guitar playing on Mk7 an Mk8 songs are astonishing, esp Purpendicular and Infinite. Check Cascades, Contact Lost, Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming, Time for Bedlam, Birds of Prey, the heavy Watching the Sky, Rapture, and All I Got is You

Both guitarists are amazing. Neither one can replace the other one. Steve Morse is truly a very nice and humble guy. I have met him twice and gotten autographs. He is very friendly and down to earth. A wonderful and talented person.
Michael Pietzsch
this dude has a very hard picking hand
Jon Blackers
This guy will never step out of Ritchies shadow.
Mark Gowans
I've been a Blackmore fan almost since i came out the womb but people need to stop this Ritchie Blackmore vs Steve Morse thing and just accept the fact that they're both brilliant. Even Ritchie himself has always spoken very highly about Steve and his playing abilities. You really wouldnt get many guitarists praising the guy thats replaced them. Just chill out people and accept that both guys are brilliant players. Brilliant but diffrent.
Mike Williamson
Steve writes and plays a lot better than he speaks in public. His articles and performances are amazing.
Steve, you are a fantastic guitarist and a great guy! Your songs with Purple like Ted The Mechanic, Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming, Vincent Price or Time For Bedlam are really amazing! Thank you Steve for everything!
crazy world
I think steve is a gifted player and seems like a down to earth guy. I think he done a great job in keeping purple going. on the other hand I think richie is very arrogant and a bit looney. but I have to say that the music richie put down on record is timeless pure magic. although I never liked richie live with purple cause he never played the classic solos live he played whatever crap he felt like that didn't even fit the songs. I think morses live playings are closer to the studio versions. if only he played a stratt. I think his guitar is to melodic compared with richies stratt. like if u are joining acdc instead of Angus u wouldn't use a les paul would you.
Apologies in advance, to all theBlackmore devotees but if you wish to castigate Mr. Morse, then clearly have a bias. Steve Morse is far superior a musician and guitar player. And whilst tastes vary, wishing to debate the demonstrably obvious would be rather silly a thing to do

Steve is a great guitarist. But why is he always picking guitar strings so hard?!
why is this guy famous guitarist? dont get me wrong, Ritchie is several classes up
Evan Davidson
Just an observation,...but it seems most people who espouse Ritchie's technical skill over steve's don't seem to have very good grammar or spelling or...I'm just going to say it...brains in their't get me wrong,...I love Ritchie as much as the next guy....guitar legend....but, say that he's way higher level than steve morse?'s a little bit the case of apples and oranges,...but,...when you get down to brass tacks technically??...notes per second? string skips per second? Clarity of notes?......Steve will blow him out of the water every time....if you want to pit legendary licks vs legendary licks,...then you have an argument that Ritchie wins that battle..and for recognizable riffs, Ritchie wins all day.....but if you know anything about guitar's painfully obvious...steve wins the technique game....
Lazaro Millares
Steve you hve to Born 8 times and Learn ALLOT to be at Ritchie Level. To me and millions of the Real Deep Purple, you are like 3000000 Light years from Blackie. Uhmmm maybe a little more.
I wonder if those strings are ok.

steve morse is good but blackmore is way out there , nobody comes close
steve stonker
Morse is just a real nice guy. He certainly took Purple to a different level, but people don't like change and want to live in the past regarding he'll never replace Blackmore. Me, give me Morse's Purple any day !
I agree with Steve Morse, when he is trying to explain how difficult it is to play the keyboard parts from "Child In Time". I used to play it with band long time ago. I thought it was me who was struggling, but now I see that even genius like Steve Morse had a bit of a trouble :) Later I found live performance of that classic played by Deep Purple with Ritchie and found out that he himself had difficulty of getting it right ;)
