Know Your Enemy

"This whole industry fucking sucks and this little get-together you guys have here is like a private boys' club and it's a bunch of jackasses and jerks and fucking gangsters and crooks who've fucking stolen everything from a fucking artist. Telling the artist to come out here and tap dance."

Just a short excerpt from Steve Miller's rant delivered immediately after his induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. It's fair to say he didn't show much gratitude for being given the accolade...

Caught up in it all were The Black Keys, fans of Miller's music who accepted the invitation to induct him but who (as Dan Auerbach told Rolling Stone) now very much regret doing so: "He said, 'The whole process was unpleasant.' And for Pat and I, honestly, the most unpleasant part was being around him."
