Buddy Cage: Pedal Steel Guitar

The New Riders’ Buddy Cage: A Sunshine Daydream Prequel Jambands.com - Need We Say More? > Features > The New Riders' Buddy Cage: A _Sunshine Daydream_ Prequel Relix
...
It's a great example of vintage NRPS at their best, featuring Buddy Cage (whom Jerry Garcia had picked to succeed him on pedal steel in the original lineup), John "Marmaduke" Dawson and David Nelson on gee-tars and vox, bassist/vocalist Dave Torbert, and drummer Spencer Dryden.
...
No matter; it became obvious that we were long overdue for a check-in with the New Riders' pedal steel master, Buddy Cage - not only to talk about 8/27/72, but to see how Buddy was feeling these days.
We'd last chatted with Buddy in 2012 after he'd been diagnosed with multiple myeloma - blood cancer - and was undergoing treatment while playing with the New Riders, touring behind their newly-released 17 Pine Avenue album. Between Cage's sheer grit and the love and support of his bandmates (longtime saddlemate Nelson, Ronnie Penque on bass and vocals, Johnny Markowski on drums and vocals, and guitarist/vocalist Michael Falzarano) and the NRPS family, Buddy toughed his way through the 2012 dates, ending up in the hospital in January of this year for a stem cell transplant.
...
As it turns out, Buddy has bounced back full of as much piss and vinegar as ever. Other than periodic check-ins with his doctors, he is clear of any treatments these days and is, in his words, "busier than Hell! We'd traded e-mails about an 8/27/72 chat; Buddy had sent a quick note that he'd give me a call from the road.
True to his word, he did - hurtling for Denver, reunited with his pals from Stir Fried for a 3-night stand at Quixote's True Blue in early September.
Buddy reported that as soon as the September Quixote stand was over, the bus would roar back east; Stir Fried would be exchanged for the New Riders gang; and off they'd go again.
"No rest for the wicked," I said.
"I know - I fuckin' love it," said Buddy, laughing. It was great to hear the fire in his voice. Between a string of New Riders shows and some dollops of Stir Fried, Cage would be busy through the end of 2013 … and alluded to some NRPS studio time in early 2014.
...
BR: Buddy, I really appreciate you taking the time to talk in the middle of the road madness you have going on there.

An Interview with Buddy Cage and The New Riders of The Purple Sage
...
RockOm caught up with Buddy Cage, steel pedal guitarist for the New Riders to discuss the new CD, spirituality and music, the music industry in general and much more.
RockOm: How did Where I Come From come about?
Buddy Cage: That is a long answer.
...
Buddy Cage: Me too man!
...
Buddy Cage: To say something?
...
Buddy Cage: It's a shared expression because we're still together. It's wonderful. It's kind of a surprise.
...
Buddy Cage: I like "Ghost Train" a lot.
...
Buddy Cage: I answered a question the other day that said, "How do you feel about long songs?
...
Buddy Cage: I don't know. From my own standpoint, I've been doing this a long time. It's just a natural thing.
...
Buddy Cage: Oh, we weren't sitting down together playing steel guitar. It wasn't like a "jaaaam". There was no "we be jamming" stuff about that. I asked him actually, and he said, "No, noo!
...
Buddy Cage: No, I didn't actually.
...
Buddy Cage: After Woodstock the major labels were signing these west coast bands. Clive being among the west coast labels was eager to take the pitch for the New Riders. He thought if he signed us the Dead won't be far behind.
...
Buddy Cage: You've heard of AIG? You've heard of Bank of America and Wells Fargo, Citibank? Well there you go. All major labels are the same.
RockOm: The major labels are now defunct and probably not coming back.
Buddy Cage: No, they're not coming back. Goddamn.
...
Buddy Cage: Well it's my cup of tea now, isn't it?
...
Buddy Cage: Absolutely.
RockOm: Let's talk a little about music and spirituality. I've been told you are an atheist. Was there ever a time in your life where you were religious or spiritual?
Buddy Cage: Never. Religious or spiritual?
...
Buddy Cage: Sure there's confusion!
...
Buddy Cage: Well, we listened to each other. That's it.
...
Buddy Cage: It wasn't that difficult.
...
Buddy Cage: I don't know about the most fun, it's the most fun I've had lately (laughing). It's the next thing up and it all worked out so well.
...
Buddy Cage: NO!
