GRAPER BLUES



Jerry Miller is an American musician who has accomplished a great deal since his birth in 1943. As well as being an extremely accomplished guitarist, he sings and has written many songs. Some of these tracks have been for his own solo career, others for either The Jerry Miller Band or Moby Grape founded in San Francisco the 1960s. Jerry Miller was the lead guitarist, although it was not uncommon for the two other guitarists to also step up and take the lead.

The Jerry Miller band is still very active today with Jerry at the helm, Darin Williams on drums, Kim Workman on Bass and Tom Murphy. There have been many different accomplished musicians that have played with the band over the years.

Through his career Jerry Miller has played with some of the worlds musical great including Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, to name a few. Clapton had said that Miller was the best guitar player in the world.

Thanks again for these great pictures and song selections! Yes, Jerry Miller is truly a somewhat forgotten guitar master. Maybe if they ever finish that reunion album and perform again, he/they may earn a bit more respect. Youtube has a very recent complete show w/ Miller & Don Stevenson playing some old 'Grape tunes w/ a back-up band at charity show in the Northwest. By the way, where is the live photo of Jerry and Skip on this post taken from? I don't think I'v seen it before.
