Jim Peterman
Jim was the resident organist and pianist in the Steve Miller Band from mid-1967 until 1968, joining just ahead of their Fillmore gig backing Chuck Berry and their appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival, and playing on two of their albums, Children of the Future and Sailor. Peterman left because he grew tired of the constant touring necessary to support the band's albums, and he was succeeded by Ben Sidran, an old friend of Miller's. Peterman later played organ on two of Sidran's solo albums.
