Steve plays keyboards on two songs of Billy's 2001-release. Read what is written on the official Billy Greer website (www.billygreer.com):

For more than fifteen years Billy Greer has definitely been the Seventh Key in the ongoing success of the classic rock band Kansas. With his unique voice and bass style, Billy has elegantly carved his own distinctive sound with one of rock's finest bands. This one of a kind artist has just completed his first solo project ironically entitled Seventh Key with musical contributions by Steve Morse, Rich Williams, Steve Walsh and Mike Slamer. This latest effort again secures Billy’s place in the hearts of his fans and critics alike. With a voice lead singers truly envy, Billy pushes the envelope once more with this newly completed project. Seventh Key joins the ranks with the other great songs Billy has sung such as "Rat Race" from Streets’ Crimes in Mind, "Cold Hearted Woman" from Streets’ King Biscuit Live and "Look at the Time" from the newest Kansas release Somewhere to Elsewhere, but this time it’s Billy’s album! Seventh Key represents another great album from one of rock's finest progressive musicians. With straight-ahead rock and roll, exceptional ballads, soaring vocals, and ripping guitar solos, this project flows like a river – allowing you to taste different musical flavors along the way. This is thanks to "Guitar God" Mike Slamer who produced, engineered and mixed this album and played most of the guitar. Mike demonstrates again what musical excellence is all about, thoroughly complimenting everything Billy set out to do. Whether you have heard Billy sing and play with QB1, Streets, pick the notes to "Dust in the Wind" at a Kansas concert, or play and sing on Seventh Key, Billy Greer’s effortless singing and genuine songwriting is something you will not soon forget. Fortunately for us, Billy Greer is one of the few musicians whose musical influences actually show through in his music, but with his own delicate signature – each bass line, each vocal note, each carefully placed lyric unlocks the mystery to what great rock and roll is all about. If what they say is true, "You can truly see a man’s soul when he sings and plays," then this man’s soul is shining at its brightest! This kid can play!

Steve: "....it was Billy Greer who suggested that I use our friend Mike Slamer to play guitar on my solo cd-even before Billy had started his cd. He told me that Mike had been doing a lot of work in L.A. and that he was actively involved in production. For that suggestion I am very grateful. I feel Billy and Mike and I have always and will always be able to work together very well. I wish Billy, and Mike big success with Billy's new cd and look forward to the chance to work with both of them again."
