Guitarist and singer/songwriter, The Gangster of Love was born on October 5, 1943 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but he was largely raised in Texas.

The Steve Miller Band has sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years.

But he's not one to rest on his laurels, as they say.

He has released two new albums in the past few years. He released "Bingo!" on June 15, 2010 (an album of blues covers) and then on April 18, 2011 he released "Let Your Hair Down".

He kicks off a European tour in London on October 20th.

Keep on rockin' us, Steve!
