Diana Ross’ Butt

Diana Ross’ Butt

Today (October 5th) is Steve Miller’s 75th birthday. He has written many songs we know and love. Abracadabra which came out in 1982 was written a few years earlier but Steve just didn’t like the lyrics so he shelved it. Then inspiration hit:  Here’s Steve Miller:

“About three years later, I was out skiing and I saw Diana Ross on the ski slopes, which blew my mind, man. There’s Diana Ross sittin’ on her butt – had just fallen over. Then I go, ‘Wow, it’s Diana Ross.’ She had about nine bodyguards with her, so I just skied on by. And I went home and I started thinking about Diana Ross and The Supremes and I had done a gig with them once on Hullabaloo in 1965, so I had a pretty good image of them. And I wrote ‘Abracadabra’ in about 15 minutes.”
