Steve Miller Slams Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (VIDEO)

At USA Today, "Steve Miller rants at Rock Hall of Fame induction ceremony":

Steve Miller was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Friday night, but apparently he didn't enjoy the experience.

Speaking in the press room after his induction, Miller, 72, insisted, "The whole process needs to be changed ... It doesn't need to be this hard. There's nothing fancy going on out there that requires all of this stuff."

Miller complained about access to the event. "When they told me I was inducted they said 'You have two tickets, one for your wife and one for yourself.' ... What about my band? What about their wives?'"

He made other accusations concerning "legal work," and claimed, "They need to respect the artists they say they're honoring, which they don't."

When a press representative tried to wrap up the session, Miller became frustrated.

"No, we're not going to wrap this up ... Here's what you need to know: This is how close this show came to not happening because of how the artists are being treated right now.." Then he announced, "I'll wrap it up," and walked off...
Still more.
