Steve Miller Band (October 5, 1943)
Artistfacts®: You can leave comments about the artist/band at the bottom of the page.
Miller was born in Milwaukee and raised in Dallas. In 1966 he moved to San Francisco and formed The Steve Miller Blues Band, which was shortened to The Steve Miller Band when they signed with Capitol Records the next year.
Miller uses a fluctuating lineup of Musicians. About 30 different members have played in the band.
His biggest influences as a guitarist are Les Paul and T-Bone Walker. When Miller was 4 years old, Les Paul taught him his first chords. When Miller was 9, Walker taught him how to play lead guitar. Miller also learned a great deal about songwriting from Walker.
In an interview to promote the Steve Miller Band Live In Chicago
DVD, Miller talked about why his songs stand the test of time: "They're fairly simple tunes. There's a lot of harmony singing, and then when you go through the lyrics they have meaning to people. But I think the main thing is that they're positive lyrics that people like to sing."
