    Holy cow, Dawn! Wooh!! Did you talk to Mr. Miller at all? I heard he got married again fairly recently.

    Apparently he's a very low-key fellow. I remember reading a blog by someone who was at a party and thought nothing of it when this ordinary-looking guy with his wife sat down and introduced himself as Steve Miller - it's such a common name. It was only later when someone broke out an acoustic guitar and they took turns singing that the blogger realized, "Holy crap, it's THAT Steve Miller!"

    Oh yes, turns out Miller and I have a very special friend in common. I remember talking to him about his setlist and he shared with us the backstory on a couple of the songs. He is very nice, kinda quiet and laid back. The guy friends I was with brought cigars for after the show which they smoked on his tour bus. There was one other wife besides me. (His wife was not there but she could have been staying in the casino hotel. I don't know anything about his personal life. This was about 5 years ago)

    Wow Dawn, very cool !
    I have always liked the Steve Miller Band. I will have to make it a point to listen to them again as it has been many years since I played a cd/album of his.

    Steve had some good music. I've played a good bit of it over the years in cover bands. Jet Airliner (I always LOVED the "funky sh!t going down in the city" line), Rock N' Me, Take The Money And Run, Fly Like An Eagle, Jungle Love, etc. Great.

    Steve uses a Strat through a Dr. Z (if that sounds familiar, that's Joe Walsh's amp of choice) amp and some effects (delay for "Eagle", boost for solos, etc).

    I recently bought a Dr. Z, plugged in my Strat and played Rock N' Me, and went 'yup, there it is". Before that he was a Fender amp guy, which I am as well. Cool.

    Also, the song Jet Airliner had one of my first misheard lyrics I remember from when I was younger. "Big ol' Jed had a light on"...bahahaha. I love that one.
