Steve Miller Responds to Eminem After Rapper Honors His Band in “Houdini”

Eminem, who’s gearing up to release new album The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grace), gained major respect from Steve Miller for including Steve Miller Band’s 1982 hit song “Abracadabra” in his newest single “Houdini.” The single “Abracadabra” gained over 26 million views in just two days.

Sharing a post on Instagram, Miller wrote, “There is a long chain of stories, poetry, lyrics and musical roots that have crossed cultures and generations inspiring the whole world for hundreds of years and in all those lines of thought, music and rhythm there are special artists who take it all in and create new original ideas from their own feelings and experiences. You are one of those timeless originators building something new on a long musical legacy of original artists.”

“There aren’t many artists who take the time or make the effort to stand up for themselves and credit and respect their influencers at the same time. Marshall Mathers you are an exception and on my short list of people who respect the art. To be included in your process feels good while I’m still singing and playing the music I love. I’m Honored.”
