Steve Miller celebrated his birthday this week.

The former St. Mark’s student turned 78 on Tuesday. Miller attended the school but was kicked out and ended up graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School in East Dallas. Woodrow’s Facebook page marked the day with a throwback photo. He’s shown throwing the discus.

According to the post, Miller loved being a part of the music scene in Dallas when he was growing up. At one point, he was even given some tips by legendary blues musician T-Bone Walker.
