  • By the dawn of the '80s, some rock giants of the previous decade found themselves having a hard time making the musical transition to new styles. While most artists attempted to update their hard rocking sound with such '80s musical elements as synthesizers and pop-friendly production, etc., for some such innovations spelled disaster. However, for others such as Steve Miller, they spelled big, albeit brief, chart success.
  • Like another rock outfit updating their sound with synth grooves, ZZ Top, Miller merged the two styles together and scored one of the biggest radio hits of 1982--"Abracadabra." While the album of the same name performed well on the charts due to the single's success, it wasn't on par with his earlier, more focused records, making Miller's synth-pop crossover success short lived.
