Q. Hi dear Oracle,
I was wondering what Miller's role was exactly towards the band. We know that he is partly in charge of the multimedia things as doing photography and video footages, then writing his Roadie#42 blogs. But I guess those things don't take him all of his time, so what is he doing aside from this, in the studio, etc? I am quite curious about that.
All the best for the new year and cheers to all the roadies!
Chloe.


The Oracle replies:

I hope he doesn't mind me saying so but Miller is quite possibly the busiest of anyone behind the scenes. It takes a lot longer than you think; he's constantly working. The video footage - whittling down, editing and creating is very time consuming. Whenever you see Miller be it in a car, in departure lounges, planes, backstage, onstage (you get the idea), he is working.
At the live shows he started as Chris' piano/keyboard technician and is now is in charge of all Pro Tools.
He's always the last to arrive at an aftershow party - if at all - due to his unshakeable conscientiousness. Oh and that amazing Christmas Lights video we had on the home page over Christmas, yup, that was Miller. Respect.
Oh and I swear he didn't pay me to say any of this!
