Linda Williams for a kitchen table writing session.I dont think any of us think its finished but its pretty close, he says. Pleasing the unpleasable is a life goal/bad habit I possess. Makes for good songs anyway.Middle Man, also known as the Scott Miller Theory of Relativity, finds Miller waxing blatantly and uncharacteristically autobiographical. Its a story of a rural kid who went to a school where the first day of hunting season was a holiday, where his TV could pick up only two stations, if it was cloudy enough.
