I corrected the several places where it referred to the early band as "Dixie Grit". That's just plain wrong. It's "The Dixie Grits". This is not only backed up by years of interviews & such, it fits. In the land of Dixie, a favorite food is "grits" - particularly at breakfast. It's actually really really good stuff, and every time I turn somebody new on to grits, they invariably come to love them. But I digress. It's GRITS, not grit. Thanks! --Thistle172 06:34, Apr 28, 2006 (UTC)

I love this band and the music they created. It's the only music I'm not embarrassed to listen to. Such a broad, neutral, musical landscape. Maybe it's the fact they don't take themselves too seriously. It's the only music I can stand to listen to. I guess that means I'm a fan. --Anonymous

so what is it, grit or grits? the official steve morse website says grit, which i originally used in early versions of this article. perhaps thistle172 can provide verification for his claim so that it doesn't get changed for a FOURTH TIME. (btw, i was raised in dixie and i DESPISE grits.) The Anti-Joey 20:43, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Grit/Grits[edit]

I have appended the first paragraph of the History section to reflect the proper name of Morse's first band, Dixie Grit. Please notice singularity. I have also included reference. DO NOT CHANGE without talking me first and providing opposing sources of info. There is plenty of evidence that this is correct, notwithstanding Morse's official website.

No question about it: It's "Grit" and not "Grits". The referrence is not to food, but to dirt... grit. Like "Dregs" is also a referrence to grit, or grime, or what's left at the bottom. Grit, like dirt! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.80.112.230 (talk) 07:39, 30 November 2010 (UTC)
