Buddy Cage: Pedal Steel Guitar

...
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.

Wiki WORKS!
...
I just had an online conversation with an editor at Wiki - and she really helped. Let me describe the confusion - sounds obtuse from the git, doesn't it - 'describe the confusion'?! Here's the prob: My identity has been contested, a few people who 'contribute' to the Wiki entry labeled Buddy Cage see it differently than I. Now, get this, some people out there on Wikipedia feel that I have missed the beat, have argued the facts about my history. For the past year, it starts like this, Buddy Cage - An American guitarist (generally how a professional musician from the US begins), and then goes on to list my musical associations, recording sessions, various appearances and so forth.

The night Buddy developed two heads…
After all, they never even came close to the real reasons he wrote his stuff - "Ballad Of Ira Hayes", and all the songs that came in about the underdog in America, the suffering, the injustice. Would they have a fucking clue as to why he recorded a Nine Inch Nails' song?
...
Richie said, "Buddy, thanks but Ole Hoss doesn't want anybody to see him the way he is…"

Buddy Cage
Sometimes, you just can't tell... The last time I was there I was standing in the lobby having some dealing with the hotel staff. My wife saw a guy come in and she said to herself, "This person does not look like he belongs here"- waist length hair in a pulled back pony-tail, tie-died sleeveless t-shirt, several earrings, and lots of tattoos- certainly a biker and someone to avoid. Before she could even say anything to me, he headed directly across the lobby and grabbed me in a big hug. "Great to see you, Winnie," he said. It was Buddy Cage- who I hadn't seen in years. Buddy started his career with Ian and Sylvia in Canada and is best known for his work with The New Riders of the Purple Sage- the country rock band that was an offshoot of the Grateful Dead.

...
Buddy Cage eventually replaced Garcia and numerous lineup changes occurred over the decades.
...
Flash forward to the surprising 2005 announcement that the New Riders had reformed with a new lineup including Nelson, Cage, Hot Tuna's Michael Falzarano and the lockstep rhythm section of Johnny Markowski and Ronnie Penque (both from Stir Fried).
...
Strong songs (eight new Robert Hunter/David Nelson tunes with Riders Michael Falzarano, Johnny Markowski, and Ronnie Penque contributing, as well) and soaring jams (led by Telemaster Nelson and pedal steel monster Buddy Cage) make this a much-welcome chapter in the evolution of the Dead family tree.
...
Featuring guitarists David Nelson (lead guitar) and Buddy Cage (steel guitar) backing up the songs of John Dawson, the New Riders were signed to Columbia by mogul Clive Davis and went on to record 12 albums while selling 4 million.

A revived New Riders lineup-featuring Nelson and Cage along with a new rhythm section (Ronnie Penque bass and Johnny Markowski drums) and Hot Tuna guitarist Michael Falzarano-has yielded the band's first new studio album in twenty years.
...
"Where I Come From" finds the group still led by original singer-guitarist David Nelson on solid ground, making psychedelic country-rock distinguished mainly by the current pedal steel player, Buddy Cage, and lyrics by Garcia's songwriting partner, Robert Hunter.
...
John Dawson was the songwriter and the band was propelled by David Nelson's guitar and Buddy Cage's pedal steel.
...
In 2005, however, long-time Hot Tuna (a Jefferson Airplane related band) guitarist Michael Falzarano, with bassist Ronnie Penque and drummer Johnny Markowski, joined Nelson and Cage to revive the band.
...
In 2005, Hot Tuna guitarist Michael Falzarano helped revived the New Riders, joining forces with two original members - singer-guitarist David Nelson and pedal-steel player Buddy Cage, who had replaced Garcia in 1971.

...
Here's another cool interview with Buddy Cage about Where I Come From and other stuff. Check it out at www.rockom.net.

In 2005, David Nelson (guitars/vocals) and Buddy Cage(pedal steel) recruited Hot Tuna guitarist Michael Falzarano (guitars, production and vocals) to revive The New Riders of the Purple Sage.
...
The title track that opens the CD is edgy and engaging with slick slide work from Mr. Cage and twangy up-tempo jams.
...
Today's lineup - original Rider David Nelson, bassist Ronnie Penque, drummer Johnny Markowski, Hot Tuna guitarist Michael Falzarano, and legendary pedal steel player Buddy Cage - does a nice job walking the path between old-school NRPS and staking out newer ground.
...
"Me and the dog might share a bone," Cage intones masterfully as Nelson and Michael Falzarano combine their dueling guitars to a crescendo, while the rest of NRPS keep the movements steady and relaxed. "Barracuda Moon" pops out as another winning entry from the organization that colored pop culture with "Panama Red. It's humming chorus belies a simmering underbelly of intensity that Nelson and Cage steer with unhurried self assurance.
...
The "New Riders Renaissance" of 2005 brought original NRPS members Nelson and steel guitar monster Buddy Cage together with longtime jam scene veteran Michael Falzarano (guitar/vocals) and drummer Johnny Markowski and bassist Ronnie Penque of Stir Fried.

...
Early members David Nelson and pedal steel man Buddy Cage are back, along with Hot Tuna guitar slinger Michael Falzarano.
...
Eventually, bassist Dave Torbert, drummer Spencer Dryden and pedal steel guitarist Buddy Cage came on board, separating themselves from the Dead, and gaining their own identity.
...
The new lineup includes longtime members David Nelson and Cage, as well as guitarist Michael Falzarano (Hot Tuna, Professor Louie an the Crowmatix) bassist Ronnie Pengue and drummer Johnny Markowski (both from the band Stir Fried).
...
Cage plies his trademark distorted steel licks to perfection in the skyward-bound "Higher.
...
Initially a mystic-cowboy side-trip into country-rock by Grateful Dead members, the NRPS - fortified by a ready-made buying public of Deadheads - morphed into a free-standing, separate entity fronted by John Dawson and David Nelson and including pedal steel whiz Buddy Cage, bassist Dave Torbert and drummer Spencer Dryden (with assorted Dead guys slipping in on sessions).
