"I think I played like crap on the first record. It was a real scared, real safe record, and I didn't add much to it because I was more concerned about having a smooth process instead of really enhancing the songs and doing more as a drummer. (...) When we did the first record, we didn't know about the adrenaline rush and how to drive a song. So the songs are like half the tempo of how we play them live. And that damn click was ruling the way I was playing. I was freaked out about holding up the band. But if one guy was off, it totally messed me up. So I'd turn off everyone else in my headphones and just play to the click, from memory, and that ain't right."Sevendust quickly earned a reputation as being one of the most intense live rock acts going. Sevendust earned more recognition with their follow up, Home. Sevendust hit the road once again with strong radio play behind them for the single "Denial". Winning over audiences world wide by playing nearly 700 shows in a 3 year time period, Sevendust earned themselves a Gold Record (sales in excess of 500,000) for Home. Morgan was then recognized by the readers of Modern Drummer Magazine in which he placed in the Up & Coming category for their annual Readers Poll in 2000.
