  • Two months later and I still can't believe he's gone. Scott Miller wrote a LOT of my all time favorite songs.
  • Scott was a really cool dude. His book was pretty insightful too.
  • Still can't believe that Scott is no longer with us...
  • A scholarship fund has been established for Scott's daughters. Please click here if you would like to donate to it: http://www.gofundme.com/2nz0vk

  • Also, for those of you who are interested, a good chunk of the Game Theory's discography is now available for free download on the Loud Family website, courtesy of the webmaster.
  • RIP, to a fantastic musician.
  • Scott, meet you on the other side of the river. Rest in Peace.
