Steve Miller

John Tobler, Stuart Grundy, 'The Guitar Greats', 1983

WHEN WE MET Steve Miller in the Seattle studio where he mostly works these days, he was planning to make more than one album – not unreasonable since he hadn’t had an original LP released for over four years. Seattle, being at the extreme north-western tip of the United States, is a place where a substantially low profile can easily be adopted, and Miller was pleased to note that he can walk down the street there without anyone looking at him twice, something which was not the case when he lived in California and scored a series of huge hits during the mid-to late 1970s.
