Steve Miller RRHOF April 8, 2016

Barclays Center - Brooklyn NY April 8, 2016

The Black Keys introduced the Steve Miller Band, and frontman Dan Auerbach laid out why the rock radio staples remain so important. The band’s run from 1974 to 1977 was “so prolific that it demanded its own greatest hits the very next year — one that has sold a staggering 13 million copies, more than classic albums like Abbey Road,” he said. And Miller brought the hits for his performance, with prog shredding on “Fly Like an Eagle,” tight groove on “Rock’n Me,” and laid-back affability on “The Joker.”

The 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be broadcast on HBO April 30.

Steve Miller with Jimmie Vaughan: Live at JALC Blues, roots and "Blue Skies"

NY, NY -- by Evan Haga

Given its reputation as jazz’s most conservative and canonical institution, Jazz at Lincoln Center has a surprising knack for creating a certain kind of surreality in its programming. You could have seen a good example on Wednesday at JALC’s Rose Theater, where Eric Harland, an unimpeachably hip jazz drummer and protégé-collaborator to Charles Lloyd, backed guitarist and vocalist Steve Miller, whose string of unavoidable ’70s hits signify something else: baby-boomers, including a few men with ponytails, kicking back with light beer on a suburban patio or, better yet, on the deck of a beachtown rental. There are many people, this writer included, who’ve pledged devotion to the sort of music Harland usually plays because they grew up hearing too much Steve Miller Band.

STEVE MILLER- FLY LIKE AN EAGLE 40TH ANNIVERSARY- ROCK HALL OF FAME

In the studio with Red Beard

During our interview, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steve Miller reminded me that when Fly Like an Eagle came out in 1976, it contained such a wealth of great songs of varying styles, thoughtfully and seamlessly sequenced, that my FM radio deejay cohorts and I used to play entire sides of it (back when albums had sides) on the radio, uninterrupted. When I started my FM rock radio career at the dawn of the 1970s, 90% of all radio listening in North America was on the AM dial. By the time Fly Like an Eagle came out in 1976, that figure had changed to a 50/50 parity.

2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame profile: Steve Miller was destined to 'Fly Like an Eagle'

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Poor Steve Miller never had a chance.

Les Paul and his wife, Mary, were friends of Miller's parents, Bertha and Dr. George "Sonny'' Miller, and when the guitar legend and Mary wed, the Millers were best man and matron of honor.

"The way it worked was my mom came from a musical family, and my dad didn't --€“ he was a pathologist,'' said Class of 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller in a call from his New York City home.

This Must Be The Place

by Garret K. Woodward - “They headed down south and they’re still running today…”

As The Steve Miller Band blasted through the hit song “Take the Money and Run” last Friday evening at the St. Augustine Amphitheater, I found myself standing there, amid several thousand roaring fans, in awe, not only of the music, but of time and place itself.

As Miller approaches induction next month, it’s a question worth asking. For 22 years, the voters passed him over, refused even to name him a finalist. What changed this year? Why, 50 years after forming the band that bears his name, is Miller finally receiving rock and roll’s highest honor?

Flashback: Meeting Rock And Roll Legend Steve Miller in 1986

By David Woo - Dallas Morning News. I grew up in Port Arthur, Texas, home of Janis Joplin, and I recall the sounds of the Steve Miller Band blasting in my Volkswagen in the early 70’s. In 1986 I was assigned to photograph Steve at Capitol Records in Dallas for the paper. As soon as we met, Steve made me feel like we had been friends for a long time. We discussed where I should take his portrait and we decided he would wear his signature sunglasses and lean against a white wall wearing his leather jacket and holding one of his guitars.

Steve Miller Says that After "a Great, Great Year," His Band Is "Putting Together a Whole New Show"

Steve Miller capped off what he describes as “a great, great year” by getting the exciting news that he will be among the artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April. In addition to the honor, Miller says he’s looking forward to doing plenty more touring with his band in 2016, and he tells ABC Radio that he’s planning to revamp his concerts for the New Year.

“We’re working on putting together a whole new show,” he reveals. “We had a great, great year. This last year we did 71 cities, and we just got on a roll and every show was just better than the last one. And when that happens, that’s really special.”

Steve Miller on Rock Hall Induction: 'It's taken a long, long time'

(ROLLING STONE 12-17-15) "Now that I'm, in nobody will have anything to complain about," says the Space Cowboy

There have been 25 members of the Steve Miller Band during the past five decades, but next April, the Space Cowboy will stand at the podium all by himself at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. "I think that's probably the right choice," he says. "Right before I moved out to San Francisco, I played in Buddy Guy's band. One night, he said to me, 'Listen, man, when you get out there, call it the Steve Miller Band. You're going to go through lots and lots of musicians, and you don't want everyone to get all upset when you fire your bass player.' It turned out to be really good advice."
