Current bid for the Strat -- $55,000? Wow. You could buy a lot of Steve Morse Signature guitars for that -- and, unlike the Strat, they will actually stay in tune.

Sad. He was a brilliant musician.

So true - Inca Roads still knocks me out......

It would have been great to hear his commentary on the 2016 US elections and the Donald....

There's an iconic poster of Mr Z. (hint: title rhymes) which might do the job, methinks...

Good old times ... in the 1980s I occassionally worked in a studio that was equipped with another mixing console previously used by Pink Floyd; that was a bit "newer" and was fitted with "modern" flat faders already (no "thrust lever" style) and with fader automation. However: no motors, just VCAs. And still, Pink Floyd weren't happy with the VCAs, so they replaced all those electronic faders by pure "biological" passive faders. No wishiwashi. Just cables :-)
