This is a great concert from ‘81. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=94nNyutXuF0
Who’s that ripping on the pedal steel?
Thanks,
Nick

I saw Paycheck in Louisville around this same time along with Elvin Bishop. I'm pretty sure one of the Murphys was on steel. Either Big Jim or Wally. I think it was Big Jim, but it's been a long time.

{Edit:} Never mind, I see Darrell has beat me to it.

That is Big Jim Murphy on Sho~bud pedal Steel. And here's a picture of me playing that very Sho~bud Pro II Custom....as I used to keep and tech all of Murph's steels when he lived here. Gosh I miss him and you got me teary-eyed as I watched/listened almost through that whole video. Murph always monstered over everything he played...incredible.

Just do a search here with Big Jim Murphy in the box. It will turn up a bunch of stuff.

I don't know how much you know about him and you may already know this, but he passed away a few years back. He was a monster player on pedal guitar and those without pedals too. He was also a killer sax player and lord knows what else.

I used to go see him at Gabe's around Nashville in the 90s. I know he did some things with Mr. Telewacker himself, Redd Volkaert. Just great.

Was Jim Murphy playing steel for Paycheck in '84?

I don’t know nearly enough about so many steel players, but thanks to you guys I’m learning a little every day.
Thanks,
Nick

It looks and sounds like Wally Murphy to me.

Fred, 100% Jim Murphy. As far as I know, Wally never toured with Paycheck.

I had the pleasure of doing a cd with Jim several years ago called Memories of Shot.

IMHO the best shuffle drummer to come out of Nashville
