Contributing greatly to the upended American culture in the late ’60s, Steve Miller formed the Steve Miller Band with guitarist James “Curly” Cooke, bassist Lonnie Turner and drummer Tim Davis. With albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller created a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music while producing a compelling vision of what music and society could be in the future. In the ‘70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n’ roll music that has continued to dominate radio over the years. His hit singles include “The Joker,” “Livin’ in the USA,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Jungle Love” and “Abracadabra.” Currently, Miller contributes his time as a member of the Department of Musical Instruments of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and Jazz at Lincoln Center. In April 2016, Miller will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Based out of Jacksonville, Florida, southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd came to popularity during the 1970s for its blues, rock and country infused sound. In 1973, the band released its self-titled album featuring the hit single, “Free Bird.” The album went on to sell more than one million copies and put the band on a national platform. Lynyrd Skynyrd continued to grow its fan base with the release of its sophomore album, Second Helping, which featured one of the band’s most popular songs to date, “Sweet Home Alabama.” In 1977, three of the band’s members including lead vocalist and songwriter Johnny Van Zant died in an airplane crash. The tragic accident ultimately led to the band’s breakup and Lynyrd Skynyrd didn’t reunite until a decade later. The reunion tour included the surviving band members as well as Johnny Van Zant, the younger brother of Van Zant and the new lead singer for the group. Despite a number of lineup changes, the band continued to record and tour over the next three decades.
Considered one of the biggest rock stars of the ‘70s, Peter Frampton got his start in music when he began playing the guitar at the age of eight. As a teenager, Frampton played in a couple of successful bands and decided to embark on a solo career in 1971. With the help of music stars including Ringo Starr and Billy Preston, Frampton released his debut studio album, Wing of Change, a year later. Despite help from some of the greats, the album did not sell well and his follow-up album experienced the same fate. Over the next couple years, he began touring and building a loyal fan base through his lively performances. In 1975, Frampton recorded a live album entitled Frampton Comes Alive!. The album was a huge commercial success, selling over 16 million copies and topping the charts for 10 weeks straight. It also produced his first three hit singles: “Baby, I Love Your Way,” “Do You Feel Like We Do” and “Show Me the Way.” Over the years, he continued to tour, record and release new music but nothing matched the success of his live album. In 2013, Frampton was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame.
