Miller is best remembered for his bands The Loud Family and Game Theory, the latter of the two hitting my radar thanks to The Three O’Clock’s Michael Quercio.
I never met Scott, but our orbits were remarkably close. Game Theory was based out of Davis, California, home of my alma mater, UC Davis. Game Theory drummer Jozef Becker attended the same high school that my son, also a percussionist, attends currently. And the kicker: Scott wrote about music, and he did it well.
Add to this the outpouring of sadness and melancholy on my social media feeds, and I feel like I’ve lost a good friend that I never actually met. Fortunately his real friends have set up the Scott Miller Family Memorial Fund for those of us who want to help but don’t know what to do.
There’s a lot more to be said, and hopefully I’ll be able to line up the dominoes necessary to do Scott justice, but the important thing today is to get you to click on the link above and drop a couple of bucks into the kitty. I know times are tight, but Miller’s kids can use our help.
