Steve Miller Encourages the Hall to Honor More Women
This year's inductees — N.W.A, the Steve Miller Band, Chicago, Cheap Trick and Deep Purple — have a lot of hits, a lot of fans and a lot of history. One thing they don't have is a single female member. Throw in Ahmet Ertegun Award winner Bert Berns and you have an entire Hall of Fame class without any women. Steve Miller addressed this matter directly. "I encourage [the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame] to keep expanding your vision," he said, "to be inclusive of women, to be more transparent in your dealings with the public and most importantly, to do much more to provide music to our schools."
