As a kid, I always loved the Joker, but I got too cool for rock school, during high school, turning my back on much of my mid-'7O's pop-rock. Times have changed & I have a lot of respect for Steve & his Texas, Boz Scaggs,The Steve Miller Blues Band roots. I was pleasantly surprised to see Steve Miller booked for our local exhibition, the PNE, this summer. A few years ago, he headlined Saturday night, at Portland's Waterfront Blues Fest. What a killer show, his voice, guitar & band, (same backing vocalist since the '70's), all really impressive, including his generosity sharing the stage with Curtis Salgado, (great vocalist/harp player, who once fronted Santana, having just gone through cancer) & Randy Hanson, (THE Hendrix impersonator)!
