Steve Miller was 23 years old when he formed his self-named band in 1966. He is considered a musical icon, releasing hits songs that dominated the airwaves throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2016. Among Miller’s most notable singles were Abracadabra and Gangster in Love. His 1973 single The Joker landed on top of the Billboard 100 chart and the UK singles chart.
Music ran in the Millers’ blood. His mother was a well-known jazz singer while his father was a doctor, but at the same time, a recording engineer. He was only four years old when he gained interest in playing guitar, and his love for music grew deeper as their family welcomed a number of legendary guitar players in their home. After heading to San Francisco, he fell in love with the city’s energetic music scene and decided to stay to create his own name in the music industry, a dream which he definitely accomplished.
