FYI - The Steve Miller Band was originally The Miller Blues Band... Hence the bluesy sound of their first couple albums. Then Stevie Guitar realized with Livin In The USA that he could make hits. The rest, as they say, is his-to-ry!

Nice image, squirt!

I believe Chuck had a very limited number of A/P's available on his site or somewhere else for sale. I've never heard where the people who have those A/P's originally got theirs. I'd love to know.
a few Alejandro Escovedo posters were sold at TRPS and on Chuck's European tour last year. none through his site.
this thing is the tits.

while not a big Steve Miller fan, there is no denying the band has had a bunch of hits.
I do dig the early albums (Sailor & Brave New World). very bluesy and psychadelic.
Thanks electrachrome. This may give me more incentive to go to TRPS this year!

coupla' pic's I took from this past Christmas Jam XXII

That's Ivan Neville over his left shoulder...oh and Warren (The Ever So Gracious Host of Christmas Jam in this other photo).

Steve Miller basically hosted the entire late-nite set. Usually Warren introduces everyone and carries the show from guest to guest.

What happened to Warren's white pick guard? Guitar Center must have all sold out of Gibson Les Paul Sunburst white pick guard & Warren drew the short straw.

Almost 10 years, yeah, ha.
They're a Band Beyond Description, like Jehovah's Favorite Choir

I remember having a backstage pass for that billing at Soldier Field. Damn illness put me out of commission and wasn't able to go to the shows. Hard to believe that was almost 20 years ago. :wink:

I ended up seeing Steve Miller twice around then. First time was a greatest hits type show and was pretty by the book and unmemorable. Second time was part of a rally and they played none of the big hits - just pure jammy blues like the old Steve Miller Band. Good stuff, that one. Norton Buffalo (RIP) was on fire for that show.
