A short profile:

It's one thing for an experienced guitarist to pass along some playing tips, and it's another when jazzman Les Paul -- the man credited with inventing the solid-body electric guitar -- is the one passing along instructional information. Such was the case during Steve Miller's youth, as family friend Paul showed the fellow Wisconsin native his first chords. During the 1970s and 1980s, Miller often employed Paul's pioneering multitracking technique in the studio for the vocal parts on his bluesy rock albums, many of which became best sellers.

In 1950, Miller and his family moved to Dallas, where he formed his first band, the Marksmen, at age 12. At one point, the group included future solo star Boz Scaggs, who would collaborate with Miller again on later projects. The Marksmen disbanded when Miller attended college in Wisconsin; he later moved to Chicago, then returned to Texas before settling in San Francisco. While living in the Bay Area, he put together the first incarnation of the Steve Miller Band, which signed with Capitol Records following their June 1967 performance at the star-studded Monterey International Pop Festival in Monterey, Calif.

Seven albums released between 1968 and 1972 –- the first two featuring old pal Scaggs on vocals and guitar -- produced just two minor chart singles. The Steve Miller Band finally broke through commercially with 1973's The Joker -- its title track peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100. The multiplatinum, keyboard-flavored follow-up, 1976's Fly Like an Eagle, spawned a trio of major hits -- "Rock'n Me" (No. 1), "Fly Like an Eagle" (No. 2) and "Take the Money and Run (No. 11). The similarly successful and similar-sounding 1977 album, Book of Dreams, offered three more classics -- "Jet Airliner (No. 8), "Swingtown" (No. 17) and "Jungle Love" (No. 23).

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
