McKnight on Miles: “He didn’t yell like I heard people say, he was pretty cool and down to earth.”
Comments: McKnight had long dreamed of getting the Miles gig, but sadly, did not gel with Miles’s band and only played a few gigs at the end of 1986 – McKnight was simply told that his sound was not what Miles was looking for.
