I was opening for this sorry-ass cat named Steve Miller…didn’t have shit going for him, so I’m pissed because I got to open for this non-playing motherfucker just because he had one or two sorry-ass records out. So, I would come late and he would have to go on first, and then when we go there, we just smoked the motherfucking place and everybody dug it, including Bill. – Miles: The Autobiography, by Miles Davis with Quincy Troupe, Touchstone/ Simon & Schuster, 1989, pg. 301

That was a funny quote...watching Bob's Burgers tonight and the episode had
a Steve Miller reference. Dude working in a food story in a Steve Miller
cover band! Guess he wasn't a Spacecowboy? Little insight to how one genre
feels about those on radio with "pop" hits. Weird pairing tho for a concert...
