July 28, 1976 The Steve Miller Band’s album Fly Like An Eagle is certified gold!
Right at this moment I am sitting on a lush, pillowy, white couch under a tent at a gorgeous home on the Long Island Sound in Rye, NY.
There’s a big rainstorm passing overhead and I’m looking at the sailboats rocking up and down like see saws in a playground. The Stingers are about to play this gig for about 500 people and I’m enjoying these few moments in the rain that I love.
I also love singing Steve Miller songs such as The Joker and Fly Like an Eagle. I don’t know too many others from the Steve Miller Band (Big Old Jet Airliner…and…hmmmm?), but I think his material is a good fit for my voice.
I wanna give a shout out to Elle Winter who is performing in Seattle tonight. Good luck girl!
(I recorded today’s video earlier in the day and then I had to fly (like an eagle? get it?) to my gig. You can’t see it in the way we cropped the video, but I am wearing a new shirt. It’s gray with short sleeves and a weird snap on the neck. )
