Although Steve Miller is known for keeping on top of all the latest musical technology both in the studio and on the road, he told us that digital is hardly his favorite medium for listening to music: ["I prefer to listen to music on vinyl. And when digital first showed up. I thought it was really great, 'cause it was cleaner and there wasn’t tape hiss, and there wasn’t the crackily sound of the vinyl records. And I was over at a musicologist’s house — a guy that had 10,000 singles. We sat around four about two hours listening to old 45’s — the worst vinyl there is. Then, we were looking for one song, and he said, ‘Well, I don’t have it on vinyl, I have it on CD' — and we put the CD on and it was, like, thin and transparent compared to the vinyl. So, vinyl's like a really juicy steak.”] SOUNDCUE (:38 OC: . . . really juicy steak)
