Rhett Miller interviews with Seattle Gay News

Back off, he's taken.

Handsome rock star Rhett Miller is spoken for.  Plus, two little ones running around at home.  But on the bright side, he's one of the nicest guys on the music scene who gives a resounding "Hell yes!" to gay marriage.

Miller, both a solo artist and group leader for Old 97's, has a brand new album out entitled The Dreamer and is touring nationally to promote it.  His itinerary includes a performance next week in Seattle (June 22, The Crocodile).  His live sets are said to include music from the just-released album, Old 97s catalog favorites, and songs from 2002's The Instigator.

Seattle Gay News caught up with the native Texan this week, and he provided us with tidbits on The Dreamer and his touring band, his favorite memories of playing in the Emerald City (a famous comedian once stripped at his show), and he expands on his approval for same-sex marriage.  He also tells us what goes into his suitcase when heading out for a big tour.

Our interview with Rhett Miller prints Friday, June 15.  Grab a print copy tomorrow in the Seattle metro area, or look for it online at over the weekend.
