About Steve Miller

Steve Miller's career has encompassed two distinct stages: one of the top San Francisco blues-rockers during the late '60s, and one of the top-selling pop/rock acts of the mid- to late '70s. His first recordings established his early style as a blues-rocker influenced but not overpowered by psychedelia. Then, in 1973, Miller's reinvention as a blues-influenced pop/rocker who wrote compact, melodic, catchy songs, led to platinum success for The Joker and a number one hit for its title track. Three years later, Fly Like an Eagle eclipsed its predecessor in terms of quality and sales. In the early '80s he briefly took on a new wave tinge, and even topped the charts with the synthy "Abracadabra," before returning once more to his blues-rock roots.
