Steve Miller is the son of Berta, who was a singer, and George Miller, a physician. During the 1950s, he moved with his family to Texas, where he attended Dallas’ St. Mark’s School, where he formed his first band called The Marksmen. Soon after, he transferred to Woodrow Wilson High School, from which he matriculated in 1961. In the following year, he moved back to his hometown, where he enrolled at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, but Steve decided to quit education and began pursuing a professional career in the music world.
Steve`s professional career began in the early 1960s while he was still in college. He formed the band The Ardells, with Boz Scaggs, Micheal Krusing, Denny Berg, and Ben Sidran. However, the band didn`t last long, as Steve wasn`t satisfied with their music scene, and left the band, returning in 1966 with a new formation and new band called Steve Miller`s Blues Band, which later became known as The Steve Miller Band. Ever since then his career has gone only upwards, and so has his net worth.
The band`s first album came out in 1968, entitled “Children Of The Future”, but reached only No. 134 on the US Billboard 200 chart. Nevertheless, Steve released another album the same year, entitled “Sailor”, which reached No. 24 on the US Billboard 200 chart, and achieved gold status. However, until 1973 and the release of their eighth studio album “The Joker”, which reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200, and achieved platinum status, Steve didn`t have any major commercial success. This album increased his net worth considerably, and encouraged him to continue in the same way.
During the 1970s, he and his band experienced high popularity, and with albums “Fly Like an Eagle” (1976), which achieved four times platinum status, and “Book of Dreams” (1977), which achieved triple platinum status, Steve`s net worth increased to a large degree. He continued successfully in the early 1980s with albums “Circle Of Love” (1981), which was eventually certified gold, and “Abracadabra” (1982), which reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart, and achieved platinum status in US.
After that, his popularity began to decline, and since “Abracadabra”, he hasn`t had any major commercial success. He has released six more albums, the last one being “Let Your Hair Down” in 2011, which only reached No. 189 on the US Billboard chart.
Thanks to his talents, Steve has received several prestigious awards, and accolades, including induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Fame in 2016, and as a part of the band, Miller received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Speaking about his personal life, Steve Miller has married four times. He is in marriage with Janice Ginsburg Miller, with whom he resides in New York City.
