    Re: Rod Miller Retiring?


    I could have sworn I saw Rod play last Wednesday night the 11 of January around 7.30-8.00 pm.

    Impossible, he knows the rules If you're out on disability, you are in the park as a Guest, Period.

    Johnny (the only player who wears a straw hat) was out with a sprained ankle for a few weeks, but had signed in to meet someone. And they asked him to play 'just one or two songs'. And when the Powers That Be found out about it they were not amused...

    In very broad terms Rod's right hamstring had it's nerve pinched for so long it atrophied. They relieved the nerve, it's healing and coming back, but v-e-r-y s-l-o-o-o-o-w-l-y. More than that, and you'll have to ask him yourself.

    I knew I was wrong! Must have been the 7am to 5pm meeting and 2 martini's I had before hitting the park....

    I hope Rod gets better soon, but I hear nerve damage takes a very long time to recover from.

    Re: Rod Miller Retiring?

    Rod Miller is one of those DL treasures that makes DL better than other theme parks. Groups giving aura to the park such as the side street strutters and the acappella groups make DL a unique park. Shows that aren't connected only to a movie, but are a genre are great too such as Billy Hill & the Hill Billies. This is what makes DL unique and creates the fond memories that we all have. No number of rides on space mountain will give you the fondness of the personal people connections you make at the park. Of course the character meets around the park do this too, but other places have tagged into their own Warner Bros. and Shrek characters to fill in there. I would like to see DL keep these folks and add more interesting side acts such as the jazz players outside the exit to POTC and even the trashcan trio (although I would like to see a new show with them).

    What act would you want to see in there? Is this a possible thread?

    Re: Rod Miller Retiring?

    Count me among those who would like to see Rod return to play. However, if that's not to be, I'm pretty sure there is at least one person who would agree with me that he should have Disneyland's highest honor bestowed upon him: a window on Main Street.

    and he should have his OWN sound-scape on Coke Corner when others aren't playing.

    I do hope he comes back...but I know I personally would die without the ability to use the sustain pedal.

    Rod's definitely window material, and I like the idea of recording some of his stuff (or using previous recordings) as part of the music loops on Main Street. He's too much a part of that area to just completely leave.

    Re: Rod Miller Retiring?

    Apparently Rod came by the piano (as a guest) a few days ago and announced he would no longer be doing it.

    Johnny is now #1 seniority, and Allan now plays every Saturday and Sunday evening and is #2 (meaning he'd fill in for Johnny if Johnny was doing something else).

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Re: Rod Miller Retiring?

    Can we have just one more time when we can all come down... here him play... and send him off in style?

    Please?

    He's too important... and too loved... to just not be there anymore.

    I want fireworks!

    and a party

    and a proper send off with a proper THANK YOU!!!!!

    Probably not, I'm guessing.

    But he will probably frequent Coke Corner anyway, as he was given a pass.

    Rod Miller and a magical day at Disneyland.



    A day at Disneyland without some real magic.

    Need I say more?
    Thanks, Rod - even if you never play another note on that set of ivories above, you'll always be an indellible part of my Disneyland memory-
