Steve Miller Band at the Greek Theatre Los Angeles

Dave DiMartino, MOJO, September 1997

THIRTY YEARS in the rock 'n' roll business. A man without a record label. A man who packed the Greek Theatre playing absolutely nothing from his most recent album – 1993's Wide River – and absolutely everything to be found on his last live album, released in 1983. A man who fills concert halls and sells his greatest hits sets to a new generation of teenagers every year like clockwork. An influence on the Spin Doctors! The only Summer of Love figure to ever play on Paul McCartney's newest album! And more!
