RIP, to a wonderful person who shared his gift of music with everyone. Great times at the ET in the 1970's, what a privilege to have heard some of the best blues music around.

Bill singing and playing his harp with his band with Tim Matson on guitar and Ray on bass at the Euclid Taven in the early 1980's - there was nothing finer.

Bill you were the real thing and you played for the music and poured your heart out every night.

You made it count- thanks.

I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Mr. Miller, but I'm a small time musician in Atlanta and I absolutely love Mr. Stress' music. Rest in peace kind sir. May God bless you and your family.

Years ago I worked on election day handing out material for a candidate at a polling place. It was cold and snowy. Mr. Miller and I struck up a conversation about all kinds of things. Two hours in, we got around to music and I said "I really like Mr. Stress" and he said "Yea, that's me." I like to think, at least for the rest of the day, we were good friends. My experience with him is he was a kind, gentle, intelligent and quiet man who loved the blues. Condolences...

Dear Bill
I know that you and BB are making sweet Jam in Heaven
Love MJ

Thank you for being a friend to me. I will always be grateful to have known you.

Loved Stress, he gave us a lot of great music to dance to and great memories. Thanks Bill I will see you later. Will always remember you love you. Lana

I first met Bill in 1966, and we talked about what we both loved: the blues. He was very gracious, and let me sing with his band many times over the next couple of years. We traded information on good harmonica licks and enjoyed mutual respect. I am deeply saddened by his passing.
