Steve Miller to Teach at USC

Guitarist Steve Miller may have been a joker, a smoker and a midnight toker during his day, but none of that tops his next move. Miller will be a member of the University of Southern California's Thornton School of Music faculty as an Artist in Residence. Want me to break down that fancy title? Okay, I will. In the role, Miller will work on a regular basis with undergrads in the Popular Music and Music Industry programs, imparting his wisdom upon them and sharing his experiences with them. I can't think of a better person to teach the kids a thing or two about the real music business than Mr. –er- Professor Miller.
Last year, the Steve Miller Band held two sold-out concerts on USC's campus as part of the Thornton School of Music's 125th anniversary celebration, so perhaps that how he got his in.
Would you be more apt to take attend USC because Steve Miller is a member of "the faculty?"
