Buddy was a big influence. Panama Red was one of the tunes that made me want to play steel. The West Coast style influenced the development of Country electric guitar. That staccato style lead. Guys like Speedy West, Ralph Mooney, Tom Brumley, Jay McDonald, Fuzzy Owen, Dick Stubbs and Buddy Cage. The early Bakersfield Tele pickers were copying the Pedal Steel guys.

Rest In Peace Buddy.

We had the first NROTPS album and listened to it over and over. For all that, I don't seem to remember it much, could have been the atmosphere I suppose...

Being from Fresno, where Country WAS Top 40, I liked them right away. Was into Flying Burrito Brothers and Poco too. Plus all o' them Bakerstucky pluckers and twangers.


There is never enough time to be in a hurry...

I dug all those groups NRTOPS, Poco, Flying Burrito Brothers also. I bought their albums, of all of those groups, I can't say a better compliment than plunking the cash down on the record store counter. That is the highest compliment I can give any performer.

I believe he was part of a multiband show we did in Montecello, N.Y. way back in 1993. I have a DVD of our part of the show. They told me that there was a pedal steel player who was with NROTPS, as well as blues player little Sammy Davis. From what I heard of his playing it was most likely Mr. Cage, he was great.

Hats-off to someone who was a part of the history of modern music styles.
