“The Steve Miller Band passed me by, but I heard great things about those guys,” noted the Rock, Dwayne Johnson.

Adele once noted, “No, they’ll never influenced me *musically* – but I studied Steve’s boldness, his determination to do his thing – and I take inspiration from such great people. You can see, too, Steve was dressing his way, ahead of his time – and it was not what everyone wanted to see him wear. I get that a lot!
