Academia Reaches a New High

I’m just going to copy and paste the first few paragraphs of this awesome press release.

Los Angeles, CA – Some people call him the Space Cowboy. Some call him the Gangster of Love. But when Steve Miller, one of rock music’s all-time greats, joins the University of Southern California faculty this fall, he will have to get used another moniker: professor.

During the 2010-2011 school year, Miller will teach at the USC Thornton School of Music, named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the top music schools in the country and noted for its broad curriculum, internationally renowned faculty and immeasurable contributions to the music industry.

“To say we are thrilled about Steve joining our faculty would be an understatement,” said Chris Sampson, associate dean of the USC Thornton School of Music.
