Today in Music History – October 22

On this day in 1976, after narrowly escaping a run-in with Woody Allen outside of Elaine’s, Steve Miller was arrested by the music police and had his poetic license suspended for one year for the awkward rhyming of “Texas” with the grammatically incorrect “facts is” as well as  “other people’s taxes” in his hit song “Take the Money and Run”.
