    Seeing them live tonight in town. My uncle invited me, or else I probably wouldn't have gone. I know Steve Miller's big hits (and Show me the way and Baby I love your Way from Frampton)

    Are they fairly entertaining shows? Thx.

    I saw Frampton and buddy guy together. Buddy crushed it, I didn't know how peter could compete. He did and stepped it up. You are going to have a great experience with them both.

    But, MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY WHEN FRAMPTON ASKS YOU!

    Yeah, Frampton's a great player. He'll run through the hits, but has enough interesting stuff besides that. Lots of folks like Miller, but IMO he got lazy once he got onto the radio. I'll bet he'll be entertaining, and... he can really play when he wants to.

    yeah, not a huge fan of Miller, especially don't like the Joker song. but I'm willing to give him a chance.
    I’ve been pleasantly surprised before.

    Saw Steve Miller live for first time a few years ago. The music was good and but I am not used to sitting and watching an entire concert. That made for a long show...

    Steve MIller live is way better than the recorded versions,
    My ex wife was his mothers hairdresser and she always gave us free tickets
    to his shows in Dallas and they were better than the recorded versions

    the girl who sat next to me in tenth grade english had an "I'm In You" era Frampton hair-do and was a total PF maniac. she was also a quiet loner who made wickedly funny remarks under her breath at the fairly hapless teacher's expense. saw her on facebook a couple of years ago. she's more goth now, forty-ish years later.

    I'd love to see the show... ive been reading SMiller's old bandmate and writing partner (Space Cowboy) Ben Sidran's book (it was his doctoral thesis BITD) - which ran me into this from '86:
