The Interpreter, the first live solo album by Old 97's frontman Rhett Miller, finds the songwriter offering up his own versions of songs by the Pixies, the Kinks, Wilco and the Ramones at Largo in Los Angeles. In this preview from the set, Miller plays an acoustic rendition of David Bowie's "Queen Bitch." "Bowie is my all-time, number-one favorite," says Miller. "In many ways I do what I do because of him. His songwriting features such nuance and depth. Subtext abounds. 'Queen Bitch' in particular is so juicy and weird. It's a pleasure to perform it, especially with Jon Brion on piano."
