To Steve, Hau Kola.
May your birthday be full of the light, love, and joy that you bestow upon us from the stage. If you ever doubt whether you have made a difference, know this: you most certainly have. From someone in an endless sea of faces admiring your work, your joy in playing the guitar—doing what you so obviously are meant to do—is inspirational. You have not only shown others what is possible, you are contributing to universal harmony through music.
Thank you for sharing your gift with us. Thank you for your positive example.
The message of music is this: "We are love, existing in love, from Love as One." No doubt, you have heard the same. Mitakuye Oyasin.
Happy birthday, Steve. May joy be yours always.
With highest regards,

Dear Mr. Morse,
Three days before your birthday you made my life time dream come true.
It was one hot July evening; a stage was set just in front of six gigantic Corinthian columns thrusting 22 meters into the sky line composing part of the Temple of Jupiter, built in the 3rd millennium B.C. in Baalbek-Lebanon.
On that stage, the legendary band Deep Purple performed one of the best concerts in the history of Hard Rock.
That night Mr. Morse, the sound of the six strings of your Guitar out matched those six Corinthian Columns and sky rocketed much more higher in the skies of Lebanon. For a moment I thought that the temple will collapse on the sound of your powerful riffs.
Rumor had it, that during that night the Roman Mythological king of Gods and the God of sky and thunder ”Jupiter” ,woke up from his 3,000 years sleep the moment he heard the sounds of your guitar.
Steve, you are a legend. Happy Birthday and many more to come.
