Steve Miller (musician)

(Redirected from Steve Miller Band)

Steve Miller (born October 5, 1943) is a blues and rock and roll guitarist and performer. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison during the 1960s. He formed a new band called The Ardells. Miller taught Boz Scaggs some chords, and Scaggs joined the Ardells the next year. The next school year Ben Sidran was added to the Ardells as a keyboardist.

In 1968, Miller formed the Steve Miller Band, with Scaggs handling vocals, and released an album, Children of the Future, the first in a series of discs rooted solidly in the psychedelic blues style that dominated the San Francisco music scene at the time. Scaggs would leave the band after a couple of albums with vocal chores taken over by drummer Tim Davis; Miller himself would begin singing occasional lead on 1969's Brave New World. These albums performed respectably on the album charts but failed to yield a hit.

1973's The Joker marked the start of the second phase of Miller's career: more pop-oriented and simplistic, the album featured a number one hit in the title track as well as several other popular tunes. Miller was now handling all lead vocals; his limited vocal range actually made the songs more radio-friendly and accessible.

Miller followed up The Joker with Fly Like an Eagle in 1976 and Book of Dreams in 1977. This pair of albums represented the peak of Miller's commercial career, both reaching the top echelons of the album charts and spawning a seemingly-endless series of hit singles, including "Rock 'N' Me", "Take the Money and Run", "Jet Airliner", and "Jungle Love". While critics lambasted Miller for abandoning his more ambitious approach and socially-aware lyrics in favor of simple pop-rock and derivative blues tunes, fans gravitated towards the catchy, melodic songs in great numbers, and the Steve Miller Band co-headlined a major stadium tour with The Eagles in 1977.

On the heels of this massive success, Miller took a long hiatus from recording and touring, emerging in 1981 with Circle of Love, an ambitous album possibly intended to appease critics of his new style. Sales were disappointing, however, and in 1982 he returned to the pop formula with another hit album, Abracadabra. This would be Miller's last great commercial success; a series of collections, live albums and attempts to find a new style would appear sporadically, but by the early 1990s Miller had given up on producing records altogether.

This would be Miller's last great commercial success; a series of collections, live albums and attempts to find a new style would appear sporadically, but by the early 1990s Miller had given up on producing records altogether. This marks the first release off her forthcoming 2005 album due out in March. Dannii's You Won't Forget About Me entered the UK Single Charts at #7, making it the 5th biggest club track in the UK of 2004. Sales were disappointing, however, and in 1982 he returned to the pop formula with another hit album, Abracadabra. Flower Power, the original instrumental track by Flower Power was taken by Dannii and mated with original lyrics written by herself. On the heels of this massive success, Miller took a long hiatus from recording and touring, emerging in 1981 with Circle of Love, an ambitous album possibly intended to appease critics of his new style. With AATW, Dannii released the song You Won't Forget About Me. This pair of albums represented the peak of Miller's commercial career, both reaching the top echelons of the album charts and spawning a seemingly-endless series of hit singles, including "Rock 'N' Me", "Take the Money and Run", "Jet Airliner", and "Jungle Love". While critics lambasted Miller for abandoning his more ambitious approach and socially-aware lyrics in favor of simple pop-rock and derivative blues tunes, fans gravitated towards the catchy, melodic songs in great numbers, and the Steve Miller Band co-headlined a major stadium tour with The Eagles in 1977. In late 2004, Dannii signed with Around The World Records, an independent Dance label.

Miller followed up The Joker with Fly Like an Eagle in 1976 and Book of Dreams in 1977. Dannii was married to Australian actor Julian McMahon in 1993 and after their divorce was engaged for a time in the late 1990s to Canadian Formula One driver Jacques Villeneuve. Miller was now handling all lead vocals; his limited vocal range actually made the songs more radio-friendly and accessible. After the success of this album Dannii was back in to studio to work on a new album but due to problems within the Label and a 'management change' within London Records' structure, Dannii parted with London Records in a mutually agreed decision. 1973's The Joker marked the start of the second phase of Miller's career: more pop-oriented and simplistic, the album featured a number one hit in the title track as well as several other popular tunes. Neon Nights is Dannii's most successful album to date. Scaggs would leave the band after a couple of albums with vocal chores taken over by drummer Tim Davis; Miller himself would begin singing occasional lead on 1969's Brave New World. These albums performed respectably on the album charts but failed to yield a hit. Neon Nights was co-written and co-produced by Dannii.

In 1968, Miller formed the Steve Miller Band, with Scaggs handling vocals, and released an album, Children of the Future, the first in a series of discs rooted solidly in the psychedelic blues style that dominated the San Francisco music scene at the time. The remix was a huge UK club-track. The next school year Ben Sidran was added to the Ardells as a keyboardist. I Begin To Wonder was also briefly released as a remix with the huge Dead Or Alive hit You Spin Me Round (Like A Record). Miller taught Boz Scaggs some chords, and Scaggs joined the Ardells the next year. This album, which entered the UK charts at #8, gave her 3 more UK Top 10 hits, including her biggest to date - I Begin To Wonder which reached #2. He formed a new band called The Ardells. Her first album under this deal was 2003's Neon Nights.

He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison during the 1960s. Following the success of this, Dannii landed a 6 album deal with London Records. Steve Miller (born October 5, 1943) is a blues and rock and roll guitarist and performer. The track hit #3 and this became Dannii's 13th top 40 hit in the UK. Hayley Hibarger's the best!!, 2003 compilation. In 2001, Dannii recorded a song with Dutch dance act Riva called Who Do You Love Now?. "Born 2B Blue", 1989 single. She toured Australia in the sell out Grease: The Arena Spectacular and followed that with performances in the pop-orientated-opera Notre Dame de Paris in London's West End as well as later taking on the controversial Vagina Monologues.

"Willow Weep For Me", 1989 single. Now without a record deal, Dannii returned to acting and took on stage performances. "Mary Ann", 1989 single. Following the album's commercial failure, Dannii was dropped from Eternal Records. "God Bless The Child", 1988 single. However, Girl (like Get Into You before it) failed to take the UK by storm and entered the charts at #57. "Ya Ya", 1988 single. In 1997 Dannii landed a multi-million dollar contract with Eternal Records, who released the album Girl with her first top 5 hit All I Wanna Do.

    . After the poor sales of Get Into You, Dannii parted company with RCA and Mushroom Records. "Caress Me Baby", 1987 single. The follow up album Get Into You (1993) didn't take the scene as successfully, with This Is It being her only top 10 hit from it. "Slinky", 1987 single. Dannii also filmed her first movie role in Secrets (1993). "Nobody But You Baby", 1987 single. Love and Kisses and... was remixed and edited for a UK release in 1991.

    "Behind The Barn", 1986 single. Her debut album Love And Kisses, released in 1990, contained five top 40 hits including Love And Kisses, Success, Jump To The Beat and Baby Love. "Maelstrom", 1986 single. This led to Dannii to sign to Mushroom Records and enter into the pop charts. "I Want To Make The World Turn Around", 1986 single. From there she landed a role in the successful soap opera Home and Away. Living in the 20th Century, 1986 album
