    Never heard of him, but I am saddened nonetheless, as the world needs more pedal steel players. RIP

    I saw Buddy with the Everly Brothers about 30 years ago now. It was an outstanding show start to finish. R.I.P.
  6. That's a real shame. He was great. I'll have to throw on some old NRPS.

    Bummer. I didn't recognize the name, but I sure do enjoy some of their stuff :unsure:

  8. Thinking of NRPS always revives memories of all those pinkish-purple road cases that had "Maria Muldaur" stenciled on them. :)

    RIP Mr. Cage.

    One of my favorite country bands back when i was just beginning to move beyond the country my dad raised me on. He became a fan the first time i played one of their albums for him which pretty much solidified (at least for me), their country bonafides. Most of my country music fan friends carped about that “hippie poopie” while my rocker friends complained about that “redneck poopie”. I couldn’t win either way but it didn’t stop me from grabbing up every NRPS album i could find.

    NRPS were the counter culture to more successful country rock bands like the Eagles, and the Byrds. The soundtrack to my youth. I became good friends with their bass player David Torbert, even tho were only met backstage 8 or 10 times, and he showed me a much more 'California' way to play bass (nods to Phil Lesh of course). David has passed away, as has John Dawson, and now Buddy Cage. Sad. They were pioneers.
