Scott Miller and the Music

I hadn’t talked to Scott Miller since he left the company where I worked a couple years ago. I just found out today that he died in April. Man, things just happen in the blink of an eye.

Scott was a brilliant technologist, great husband and father, and the frontman of not one, but two crazy good underground bands, “Game Theory” and “The Loud Family,” whose albums have spanned more than two decades.

I’m honored to say I knew Scott, even if mostly from a distance. I also had a chance to jam and play with Scott as a member of his third, completely unknown band, the “OO Plastics,” in which we played a few covers and some original songs during our company’s annual sales meetings. :)

Enclosed below are links to stories and interviews with Scott. Look, he even made Rolling Stone. The first site includes one of his music videos and provides links so you can download old Game Theory albums that aren’t in the stores anymore. Even though Scott’s music is still at the top of many playlists, the original label is mired in legal issues which have prevented any re-releases. Click the links, download the songs, and let Scott’s music live on. Your kids and grandkids will love this stuff.

You can also buy Scott’s excellent compendium on the past 50 years of music, “Music: What Happened?,” on Amazon – and/or donate to the “Scott Miller Family Memorial Fund” on Proceeds and donations will help cover his kids’ college tuition.

Peace, Scott.
