1987 to 1989
After the Kansas stint, Morse cut off his hair, put on a uniform and began piloting planes for "a regional airline that doesn't want to be named" [quoted from "A Talk With Morse" by Kevin Ferguson]. He didn't throw away his guitars completely though; he appears on various sessions during this time. Eventually, however, he was dragged back into showbiz by Lynyrd Skynyrd. He released a kind of comeback album in 1989; actually his first 'real' solo album.
