Steve Miller on The Music Business

Steve Miller tells about meeting the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and other greats of the 1960s, recording with Paul McCartney, and why he has since come to accept McCartney’s thesis that the first take is always the best one. Steve also discusses the business of music, which wasn’t especially fair to musicians in the first place, and how much worse it has become thanks to technology. Tech companies such as Spotify, Pandora and Apple are making money while the artists make next to nothing on streaming services.
